Principal Liz Whisnant of Mann Elementary School on her experiences with AU student teachers.

"I love to hire AU grads, because I see them in our community as learners, and I try to hire individuals who are in that learning stance. In my experience, the teachers who have come from AU understand that they are at the beginning of what is a long trajectory of learning. They are ready to put in the work to take the journey."
