2021 Miller-Manchester Mentor Teacher – Linda Souvenir
Introducing Linda Souvenir
“It is a privilege for me as a mentor each time I host a student teacher, especially a WSU student. I learn as much from them, as they learn from their experience in the classroom. In the many years I have taught and after each of the several student teachers I have had, I take the year off after to reflect on my own practice in order to become a better, more thoughtful educator. Co-teaching with enthusiastic, passionate WSU student teachers is a responsibility that is fulfilling. Knowing that our work together is impacting a generation of learners to become critical thinkers and doers is beyond rewarding.
“My name is Linda Souvenir. I have taught grades 1, 2 and 3 for 24 years. I earned my Masters in Teaching from Washington State University, Vancouver. I earned my National Board Certification and was a NBCT facilitator. “
