Hear from a few Louisiana Tech alumnae now teaching successfully in Claiborne Parish Schools...
Alex Feaster (2016-2017 TEAM Model Clinical Resident)
"Being a part of the TEAM model afforded me the opportunity to be in a school environment from August to May. Although this was a daunting task, I never felt alone. Through the TEAM model, I had a team of people behind me to support me every step of the way.
Claiborne Parish has welcomed me with open arms and has treated me as a seasoned teacher from the start. I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to grow as a teacher in a parish that provides the resources in order for me and my students to succeed.
Breann Chrismon (2017-2018 TEAM Model Clinical Resident)
"I was incredibly blessed to get to be a part of Tech's TEaM, I learned so much in that year of residency. My mentor was not only a teacher that helped me, but she turned into a very close friend that I have gotten to share my own teaching experiences with in this first year. Louisiana Tech's TEaM model made it to where I was never alone, I always had someone to call or text when I had questions or when I had just had a trying day.
Now in my first year as an educator in Claiborne Parish, that feeling of never being alone is still there. I was so lucky to get on in Claiborne Parish. I have been treated as an equal, not a newbie with no experience. One main thing that stands out about Claiborne Parish to me is that it is a small, close knit group of people that I feel like I can talk to and ask questions and give input. In the first few months of school I was stunned by all the people checking on me and making sure I was comfortable and doing well. I am so glad that I accepted this job and am now able to call Claiborne Parish my team!"
We look forward to supporting you every step of the way in your residency and hope you choose to stay a while and enjoy making a difference in Claiborne Parish! -The Claiborne Parish Leadership TEAM
