Jilian Jancuska

M.S., English Education (Grades 7-12), '10

Wilmington, DE

New York, NY

Reflections of SU

I value my experience at SU because the program is structured in such a way that each teacher candidate is exposed to many different school environments throughout student teaching.  These varied experiences provided opportunities to engage with different populations, to explore each group's potential strengths and deficits, and to watch and practice with extraordinary mentor teachers.   

Since Graduation

Now I teach 8th grade English Language Arts at Achievement First Crown Heights Middle School in Brooklyn, NY.  This is a charter middle school that is part of the larger Achievement First network.
