Teaching Fellows Reflect on their Summer

“The most rewarding thing for me was seeing how much my students grew over the summer and hearing/seeing how we have changed their lives. I always said I never wanted to teach middle schoolers, but these students have opened my eyes and my heart to a whole new perspective of how truly amazing each and every student is.”                                                                                                                                 – Kaitlyn, BTM Teaching Fellow Alumna, 2nd grade Special Education Teacher, Merrimack School District

“I had an amazing summer at Breakthrough! The program has helped me to grow as a confident leader in the community, and I have acquired many valuable skills as a teacher and team member. I will always remember my experience this summer.”                                                 – Jon Greiner, BTM Teaching Fellow Alumnus, Math Teacher, Bedford High School

“Breakthrough was indescribably helpful to me on my path to becoming an educator. From the simplest forms of lesson planning to the nitty-gritty of classroom management, all of my success is due to the varied exposure I’ve had in the Breakthrough community. I cannot speak highly enough of the organization.”                                                                                                                                                                                        – Adriana, BTM Teaching Fellow Alumna, High School English Teacher, Worcester Public Schools
