"Buffalo State is THE place to be if you want to teach anything!"
Holly Hudson came to Buffalo State after years away from the classroom and was pleased to find faculty and staff that provided her with exceptional support, encouragement, and content knowledge.
"All of my faculty were at the top of their field. The sense of community I felt in the Music department was awesome and inspiring."
Hudson credits her ease with students and at the front of the class to the many hours of hands-on classroom experience that teacher candidates engage in well before their final semester of student teaching.
Her advice to future teachers: "It can be very frustrating to find a job or feel like you are making a big difference. You will learn a lot in your first years of teaching but, because of Buffalo State, you will be prepared for it. Remember the passion that drove you to be a teacher and don't let that flame be extinguished!"
