Elise Walton's Learning Story


The most effective teacher I had in high school was a man by the name of Mr. Petherick. Mr. Petherick was my 8th grade history teacher. He not only provided me with an educational experience I will never forget but he made sure his learners obtained the information being portrayed to them. History was not a subject of interest for me but this man took it upon himself to make the learning fun. With his positive rienforcment and ability to teacher a class of 14 year olds I took on a whole new outlook on History. He taught with a lot of group work and projects allowing us to be hands on with our learning and be able to talk amongst eachother for better understanding. This teacher made learning fun for me and I will forever remember him for that.
