Harry and Rosemary Wong Encourage Future Teachers to STEAL!!

"We teach you to plan, so you can plan to teach"
 Professor Mitzi Fullwood with Harry and Rosemary Wong
Advisor Yolima Cueto with Harry and Rosemary Wong

On Thursday, March 24th Harry and Rosemary Wong visited Broward's central campus to talk to some of our future teachers.   One of several pieces of advice that the Wong's shared was to beg, borrow and STEAL!  Talk to current teachers and colleagues and ask what techniques have been successful, and then ADAPT to make it your own!

Check out the "Interesting Reads" page for more resources and keep checking back on our blog for more of Harry and Rosemary's Tips and Tricks!
