"Connection, Understanding, and the Power of Reading Aloud" with Paul Ricks
Paul Ricks, PhD Professor, Teacher Education, Brigham Young University “Books can be mirrors for us where they reflect our own experience.

But they can also be sliding glass doors, where I can walk into this world that is unlike mine, and actually live in it. To me, that’s the great potential of the written word.”

"Finding Joy and Wonder in Literacy" with Sarah Clark
Sarah Clark , PhDProfessor, Teacher Education, Brigham Young University"What I wish I could do is talk to them from their child's birth, instilling the desire to read and to engage with them.

Get them to see you read."

It's amazing to watch children's lives change or adults lives change when we teach in His way."

"How Faith Plays into Mental Health" with Timothy Smith
Timothy Smith, PhD Professor, Counseling Psychology and Special Education, Brigham Young University "As much as we'd like to believe that it's all about doing what we can individually, we actually need to look at contexts and relationships.

How do we build upon those strengths to give them a meaningful life?”

If I go back to my high school [in China], and tell my teachers what I'm doing now, I don't think they will believe it.”
