Voices on Teaching: Khiandra Woods

August 1, 2019 |

Our “Voices on Teaching” series features diverse perspectives about the importance of the teaching profession and personal stories about teachers who helped give rise to the future.

In the fifth grade, Khiandra Woods, a clinical teaching director at the University of North Texas at Dallas, had a teacher that made an effort to create a family-like environment in her classroom: she built personal relationships with her students; she knew her students’ families personally; and she even knew what her students like to do on the weekend. In this environment, Khiandra wanted to shine and meet her teacher’s high expectations.
