Department of Teaching faculty present to the Iowa Board of Regents
A team of UNI Department of Teaching faculty, select school partners and UNI preservice teachers made a presentation to the Iowa Board of Regents on the restructuring of field experiences and expansion of the Professional Development School partnerships on September 11, 2013. Field Experience Coordinators Becky Hawbaker and Curt Nielsen were joined by Debbie Lee, Executive Director of K12 Curriculum and Instruction for Waterloo Schools; Deb Beving, Principal at Lincoln Elementary in Cedar Falls; Jarith Witt, School Site Coordinator at Lincoln Elementary in Cedar Falls; and UNI preservice teachers Jessie Hutcheson, Shawna Becker and Julia North.
After the presentation, the Regents thanked everyone for all of our collaborative work in the last year and a half. Regent Katie Mulholland shared, "The new program, with its intense support in the field partnered with teachers brings so many benefits to a profession that has a profound influence not only on our students but also on our society. I am so proud that your leadership demonstrates your deep valuing of our profession and that is what UNI stands for and has always stood for."
