Mrs. Clement is such a wonderful teacher and mentor. She has been a really great blessing to me in my life and is always so willing to help me out. She has really show to me what it means to have a positive healthy student teacher relationship. She wants nothing more than to have her students be successful not only in the classroom but in life. She has taught me so many things about teaching, organization, how to talk to parents and most importantly how to talk to students. She can always make me smile and laugh about the awesome things that resource teachers sometimes get the opportunity to do.
