Beyond the pages of literature and the rules of good grammar, Mrs. Barrett’s English class provided an opportunity to grow as individuals. The class had about ten students and we were encouraged to examine the content to be covered and to be creative in suggesting how we wanted to learn. I organized the classroom, planned lessons and taught content to my peers. Looking back, the unorthodox methods used to structure that classroom provided me the skill and confidence to be a good leader today.
