Being in that school reaffirmed the reasons I decided to teach. I know I have something to give to these kids and can't wait to make a difference. They were ready to find me a job in the district; I believe I will be doing my student teaching there with them. If it was not for Valley City State, I would not even be able to have this chance.  Thank you.” — Brandon Watkins ’09
