Testimonials

“I thought the training was highly effective in building the community of guest teachers. They were on task and we were all engaged and communicative. I honestly can't think of another way to make the training better.”

Kimberly Montoya, ‘21 TeachStart Fellow

“This course was simply the best professional development course that I have been part of. The facilitators modeled all of the techniques covered in the course. The course material was thoughtfully curated with substitute teachers who are on their way to full time teaching.”

Sterling Wu, ‘21 TeachStart Fellow

“This training was the best one I've ever attended. The material was very helpful and insightful. Now I feel confident that I'm well equipped to be an effective educator. “

Miguel Peña-Flores, ‘21 TeachStart Fellow

“For me, I was placed in a school that matched my teaching style, and I got to really know the community and grow with the students. I didn’t feel like an outsider, and I was able to connect with both the students and the staff.”

Francis Chen, ‘21 TeachStart Fellow

“Without TeachStart, there’s no way I’d be teaching in SF. I had 20 years of experience abroad, but I have a family and can’t go back to school. I was about to give up and find a new gig until I found TeachStart.”

Sterling Wu, ‘21 TeachStart Fellow
