Component 4.3 | A.4.1)

Hollins University Education Department sent First Year Follow-up Surveys of Hollins University teacher graduates to employers. The ratings for the survey consisted of the following scale: Unacceptable, Developing/Needs Improvement, Proficient, and Exemplary.

One principal returned the 2015 first year follow up survey and rated the Hollins graduate as “Exemplary” and stated, “[Hollins teacher graduate] demonstrates strong skills for such an early part of her career. Lesson Plans are fully detailed, differentiated, and speak for various groups. Instructional decisions are based on student needs. She is an asset to our school, the children, and our staff. She demonstrates professional behavior at all times.”

Each of the respondents from the 2017 follow up survey rated the Hollins teacher graduates as “Proficient” and one principal provided the following comments: “[Hollins teacher graduate] already has planning capacity of a veteran teacher. She has a working relationship with all of her students, not just those with high grades. She outperforms many of her veteran colleagues in creating and maintaining a constructive learning environment.”

  1. Satisfaction of completers
    (Component 4.4 | A.4.2)

Hollins teacher graduates appreciate the small class size, the one to one mentoring and advising, and the early field experiences.

“Thank you for your guidance and support throughout my Hollins experience. You have helped me become a better and more confident educator. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from you, and I hope to continue to get professional advice.”
Thank you again! Best, Zane​ Hurst, History Teacher at Cave Spring High School

“I just wanted to say thank you to all of you. You’ve all helped me, supported me, answered my thousands of (sometimes panicked) questions, taken time to work with me outside of class and just made sure I succeeded. I’m very thankful and I appreciate it very much. Thank you for my tote and gift card, it was so sweet! I’ve really enjoyed my time at Hollins and finishing is definitely bittersweet.”
Gabrielle Azar, M.A.T. graduate, Elementary School Teacher
