Teacher Candidates for Spring 2013
January 31st, 2013
Dr. Karen Ford, Dean of the Keeran School of Education at Kentucky Christian University, reports that four students are completing teaching requirements in local and regional school systems. The teacher candidates 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. Teacher candidates this spring are divided among elementary, middle, and high school grade levels with two focused in elementary education, one in middle grades, and one in high school.
Prichard Elementary School has welcomed P-5 elementary major Rachel Chester. Ms. Chester is working in a Paired-Teaching Model with Mr. Jim Hamm in fifth grade and Janie Potter in 1st grade.
Andrew Rawlings, an elementary major, has been placed with faculty at Greysbranch Elementary in Greenup County. He is working with Jonda Bonzo in first grade and Lee Ann Stout in fourth grade.
Rowan County Middle School is hosting Kayla Blevins. Ms. Blevins is assigned to 8th grade language arts with Charlotte Bumgardner and then with Mary Armstrong in 8th grade science.
Ashley Savage, a secondary math student, is beginning her experience at Boyd County High School. Her supervising teacher is Earline Cyrus.
The teacher candidates 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), Jay Padula (Rowan County Middle School), Rhonda Salisbury (Boyd County High School), and Jeff Wireman (Greysbranch Elementary in Greenup County) for their continued support and assistance in the placement and training of our teacher candidates.
