How has the Summit's Tutoring Corps prepared you for a career in education?

I have grown a lot as an educator through Summit's Tutoring Corps program. It has prepared me for a career in education because of its unique balance of theory and practice. I've spent the majority of my time this year working directly with students, but I've also had the opportunity to participate in professional development with the entire faculty. My year as a Summit Tutor has given me the tools and questions to constantly push myself as a leader in alternative education as well as the opportunity to develop my skills as a teacher.

Why Summit's Tutoring Corps?

This program has a lot to offer anyone interested in equitable education for a diverse student body. During professional development, Summit offers instructional sessions addressing hard conversations in the classroom as well as emphasizing the importance of creating a safe space.

What has been the highlight of your year in Summit's Tutoring Corps?

The highlight of the year has been watching the seniors getting accepted to college. It has been a great moment to share with the students you have been working so hard with.

How has your work at Summit changed the way you view education?

Summit has changed the way I view education. Their unique emphasis on professional development allows the faculty to develop a strong community that encourages school sites to be in communication. This support has made a huge difference in my development as an educator and as an employee.
