Student Teachers for Fall 2012
August 28th, 2012
Dr. Karen Ford, Dean of the Keeran School of Education at Kentucky Christian University, reports that eight students are completing teaching requirements in local and regional school systems. The student teachers will gradually assume full instructional responsibilities in assigned classrooms over the course of fourteen weeks (70 days) to receive credit for this phase of their preparation program. Student Teachers this spring are divided among elementary, middle, and high school grade levels with four focused in elementary education, three in middle grades and one in middle/high school music.
Prichard Elementary School has welcomed P-5 elementary major Casey Thomas. Mr. Thomas will be working with Mr. Jim Hamm in fifth grade and Janie Potter in 1st grade.
Teachers at Hager Elementary in Ashland are supervising Andrew Stanley. Mr. Stanley’s cooperating teachers are Cheryl Jackson (1st grade) and Katie Holbrook (5th grade).
Autumn Carter is assigned to Oakview Elementary in Ashland and is working with Mary Evans in 1st grade and Kimberly Clayton in 5th grade.
Danielle Davis, an elementary major, has been welcomed by the faculty at Lewis County Central Elementary in Vanceburg and is working with Natasha Cole in kindergarten and Stacy Underwood in 5th grade.
West Carter Middle School is hosting two middle school candidates. Lela Jordan is working with Chuck Clark in 8th grade social studies and with Teena Liles in 8th grade reading. Brittany Wisecup is assigned to Candie Kane in 8th grade math and Kim Thompson in 8th grade language arts.
Jessica Burke, middle school candidate in language arts and social studies, is placed with Lora Parsons, and Nat Gray at Boyd County Middle.
Randy Roberts, a music educator student, is beginning his experience at George Verity Middle School and Paul Blazer High School with duties in marching band and choral music. His supervising teachers are Chris Whelan and Karen Hopkins.
The student teachers are excited about their field placements. They are just beginning the opportunity to work with their new colleagues in the educational community and are looking forward to the beginning of their new professions.
KCU’s Keeran School of Education would like to thank principals Jason McGlone (Prichard Elementary), Phillip Caudill (Hager Elementary), Debbie Diamond (Oakview Elementary), Sandra McDowell (Central Elementary), Ryan Tomolonis (West Carter Middle), Bob Boblett (Boyd County Middle), David Greene (Verity Middle), and Derek Runyon (Paul Blazer) for their continued support and assistance in the placement and training of student teachers.
