What is it like to live in the UCTC community? "Living in the UCTC community requires patience, effective communication, compassion, and a willingness to grow. The UCTC community is full of people who are there to walk the journey beside you, so even though there have been plenty of obstacles and challenges along the way, I have always had someone to reach out to, someone to lend a listening ear and understand whatever I am going through or wherever I am coming from. I think my favorite part about the UCTC community, however, is its adaptability. We are all teachers, so just as we all understand the importance of changing things to fit the needs of our students, we also know that community needs to be flexible and fit the needs of each of our members. It takes effort, mindfulness, a willingness to be silly, to grow, to truly listen and learn about other people, to have your opinions challenged and perhaps changed, and to walk the road knowing that you will be a different person at the other side of this, but all of this, in my opinion, is what makes the UCTC community absolutely invaluable."
