Staff

Our staff are critical to the success of our work as educators and professionals. They advise students, help find student teaching placements, provide guidance on teacher certification requirements, ensure that courses are scheduled, and serve as liaisons between the department and the schools and community agencies where our students and faculty teach and undertake research. They manage our events, help us communicate with students, faculty, and alumni, and keep our website up to date.
