As a faculty member in the School of Education at USCA, I applaud Dr. Everitt's comments regarding the hiring of newly-certified educators. I could not agree with her more! Such educators possess boundless energy, practice cutting-edge pedagogical strategies, and are wholly committed to their newfound profession. Thank you, Dr. Everitt, for your continued support of our students. Working together, we can make a difference, one child -- one partnership -- at a time. Tim Lintner Aiken
