In appreciation of those who teach teachers

In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Day May 3, we asked students who are about to become teachers to tell us what they liked about their favorite instructors here at NIU. Here’s what they had to say.

Julia O’Hara, junior, Elementary Education, speaking about James Cohen, Literacy and Elementary Education: “I was encouraged by his teaching. He hears the students and pushes us to always reflect on our thinking. He said ‘stay unfinished, never stop growing, never stop learning’ That stuck with me. When I feel complacent – I think ‘stay unfinished’ I’m still learning. I’m not finished.”
