Walden has helped me become a more effective teacher because I process information more. I really reflect on why I’m doing what I’m doing in the classroom. And also, the research supports what I’m doing, and I think that just provides my kids with a much better quality teacher and a much better quality of education. I feel if I sit down with someone I can say, “I can really tell you what a best practice is because I’ve researched that.” Not just one time. Numerous times. I could cite 50 scholars if you wanted me to. So I feel that I have a real validity in what I know now, and that…that’s powerful. Very powerful.
