  • Dr. Slocumb-Bradford believes the most productive relationship
    between teachers and students is one where there is respect,
    communication, comfort, and a shared sense of mutual understanding of
    established goals for students as well as for teachers.
  • Dr. Slocumb-Bradford believes that if ever there was a perfect pair,
    it’s certainly, students’ classroom success and a teacher’s efforts in
    the classroom. Teaching and learning should go hand and hand. When a
    teacher is teaching effectively, then students will learn. When students
    understand and master the standards, results immediately inform the
    teacher that the methods, techniques, and lesson plan was a success.


“Dr. Slocumb-Bradford has provided a variety of ways to
engage my students and build a stronger understanding base for them. The
rapport she has with her students is nothing short of amazing. Her
ability to connect with her students and her talent to teach simple
concepts, as well as advance topics, are both truly superior.”

Leslie D. Payne, Colleague

 “When excellent teachers teach in a school, everyone can just
tell who they are. Their classrooms are filled with posters, diagrams,
graded assignments, supplemental instruction tools, and lots of
students. The students seem to flock towards them like a perfume. While
there might be more homework and harder tests, the children seem to have
a special glint in their eye and enjoy the subject more than they
expected. This is what I experienced in Dr. Slocumb’s classes at
Jefferson Junior High School.”
