Teacher education and certification staff members were treated to refreshments on Feb. 22 in Centennial Hall. Missouri S&T’s Staff Council hosted the thank-you reception to show appreciation for the work employees do yearlong.
The thank-you reception is a new initiative by Staff Council’s Involvement Committee to show appreciation to departments throughout S&T.
Department spotlight: Teacher education and certification
The department is relatively new – although S&T has long educated future teachers. In October 2017, Faculty Senate voted to create the academic department, which was previously a program within the department of history and political science.
The program has since transitioned into a comprehensive department that offers expanded opportunities for state-approved teacher certification in biology, chemistry, economics, mathematics, physics, social sciences and elementary education with additional certifications in the works. A search is currently underway for a department chair.
Kelly Carter is currently the department’s interim chair. The department includes two staff members: Phyllis Blackwell, academic advisor, and Misty Fulliam, office support assistant.
