2021 Kansas Teacher of Promise: Elementary Education

Congratulations to Valeria Esparza on being named WSU’s Kansas Teachers of Promise: Elementary Education! Once each year, Kansas colleges and universities that offer teacher preparation programs are invited to select two teacher education students identified as Teachers of Promise to participate in a specific professional learning and recognition opportunity.

Dr. Jim Granada, Department Chair, Associate Teaching Professor and Director of Transition to Teaching Program, recently interviewed Valeria about her experiences in the classroom—as a student and as a teacher.
