Jake is currently teaching in the Portland area. “When I joined the Special Educator program at WOU, I could not have been more pleased with how well it prepared me for a professional career as a teacher. Everything in our preservice training was about high performance and gaining an honest familiarity with this discipline, and yet it was blended with a freedom to be connected to our own individualism. Every lecture, every teaching strategy presented, was ultimately about the goal of equipping us to transform the lives of students and meet their needs in profound ways. Western Oregon respects the diversity and autonomy of its students, but also equips each person to become an expert in their chosen field. Through exposure to cutting edge best practices, growth opportunities in student teaching, and guidance from some of the nation’s top professors, WOU has truly found a way to send out the best of the best.”
