Teaching Empathy

Professor of Teacher Education Blake Bickham, PhD

When Blake Bickham, PhD, entered the education system to teach high school English, he quickly realized how teaching itself was a small fraction of the job. During his two-year commitment to the Peace Corps in Uzbekistan, he focused on building relationships and connecting with students in addition to teaching. During his time overseas, he helped train Peace Corps volunteers, sharing his experience as a teacher to prepare them for the classroom. Now he does the same here at Colorado Mesa University to help prepare student teachers to enter the workforce.
