Education News

More than 60 teacher candidates attended the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference on October 17.  Teacher candidates attended sessions, talked with presenters, and networked with teachers and school leaders from all over the state. The School of Education sponsored the trip by paying the registration fee and providing a shuttle for the eager teacher candidates. Sporting their SU polos, they created quite an impact at the conference with their positive attitude and enthusiasm for teaching. Notably, Stevenson had the greatest number of teacher candidates attending the conference. Plans for sharing all the great lesson ideas for teaching mathematics are currently underway. 

 

On Oct. 10, the officers of Kappa Delta Pi honor society, Teachers of Tomorrow club, and School of Education faculty attended the Maryland Teacher of the Year Gala at Martin’s West where they had their picture taken with Dr. Lillian Lowery, State Superintendent of Schools. At this event, the outstanding teachers in Baltimore City and each county in Maryland were recognized and the Maryland Teacher of the Year was announced.

On Thursday, October 9, 2014, the School of Education’s Psi Omicron Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi (an International Honor Society in Education) and its partner the Odyssey School (a private school in Baltimore county for dyslexic children), hosted its second “WE ALL LEARN” program at Stevenson University’s Rockland ballroom on the Owings Mills campus.

The guest presenter was the esteemed Dr. Russell Barkley, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Barkley who is also an educator, author of numerous books and leading authority on the topic of ADHD, spoke on the topic of “Taking Charge of ADHD-The 12 Best Principles for Management”. It was an informative evening that was attended by over 200 students, faculty, clinicians, educators, community leaders and parents. Needless to say, the event was a huge success!

On Oct. 2, 30 School of Education students and graduates participated in the School of Education presentation at the President’s Donor Dinner. The students and graduates facilitated table discussions related to experiences in their university and public school classrooms.

 

School of Education students, faculty, and University mentors learned together this week as the School of Education unveiled its new vision for a Professional Learning Community. On Monday over seventy members of the SOE including senior interns, SOE faculty, and university mentors joined together to learn about a collaborative lesson planning technique called “Lesson Workshop.” Senior Melissa Cote shared a lesson seed idea with other interns, who then made observations, suggestions or asked questions.

The participants were mesmerized by the unique ideas shared. The group then broke into smaller groups to try the “lesson workshop” technique using the Maryland Career and College Ready Standards. The energy in the room was contagious as creative energy and ideas were flowing!

Later in the week University mentors and students joined together to explore multiple points of view about teaching and learning. Everyone had an opportunity to attend workshops facilitated by faculty during afternoon breakout sessions. Participants responded that they enjoyed learning together in the professional learning community and can’t wait for the next event!

Events like conferences, workshops, and special speakers will be posted for all SOE students and faculty to learn, plan, and reflect together.
