Thriving in the Classroom

“Learning how to teach from a Christian perspective has taught me to face the challenges of the classroom with a positive attitude, rather than the negativity the world so often throws at us. KCU’s education department prepared me to not just survive my first year of teaching, but to thrive.”

Lela Ratliff, KCU Class of 2013
