NOURISHING CONNECTIONS 

At the beginning of the month, a group of local school superintendents joined the College's faculty and staff to discuss our mutual goals...outstanding educational systems. The superintendents shared their perspectives on educator competencies, mental health needs, diversity, school/university collaborations, and PK-12 priorities. The discussion helped the College connect with our stakeholders and assisted us with crafting program modifications. Thank you Dr. Kadee Anstadt (Washington Local Schools), Mr. Thomas Hosler (Perrysburg Schools), Dr. Todd Cramer (Maumee City Schools), Mr. Hal Gregory (Oregon City Schools), Dr. Jim Fritz (Anthony Wayne Local Schools), Dr. Romulus Durant (Toledo Public Schools), and Dr. Adam Fineske (Ottawa Hills Local Schools) for sharing your expertise with us.

PUBLISHING ISSUES 

Our in-house journal, Learning to Teach Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies Trough Research and Practice, just published volume eight. Recent alumni of the College have authored a variety of peer-reviewed articles of interest to future and current educators, school administrators, and university faculty. The journal is edited by Drs. Jenny Denyer and Rebecca Schneider.

OUTPACING TRENDS 

For Fall 2019, we have a five year high in undergraduate enrollment within the Judith Herb College of Education. Bucking the national statistics of less students entering teacher preparation programs, more students are discovering the possibilities of a career in education with the University of Toledo.  Specifically, our freshman class is 14% larger and we have 9% more transfer students, compared to last Fall. We look forward to the educators our students will become.

PROVIDING SUPPORT 

There are many happy second-grade students at Beverly Elementary School. We recently delivered gifts of encouragement as part of the For Students: From Students initiative. UToledo students created pencil pouches and inscribed books for each young learner. These personal messages were designed to kick off the school year with a bit of excitement and support. Best wishes for a great school year, everyone!

ELEVATING PRIDE

So proud of the following achievements and recognitions:

Dr. Edward Janak (Chair of the Department of Educational Studies) recently published a book entitled A Brief History of Schooling in the United States: From Pre-Colonial Times to the Present. This book establishes links between schools, politics, and society in an effort to help readers understand the forces impacting educational policy.
Drs. Abdulaziz Alfayez (PhD, 2018) and Judy Lambert (Professor, Educational Technologies), have published an article titled, Exploring Saudi Computer Science Teachers’ Conceptual Mastery Level of Computational Thinking Skills in the journal Computers in Schools. This article is based on Dr. Alfayez's dissertation.  Congratulations.
Dr. Jason Cox, Associate Professor Art Education, has won the Ohio Art Education Association's 2019 Higher Education Division Award - "You have shown consistent commitment to all those you encounter in art education, promoting art and art education in your community." He receives his award this coming November! You make us proud, Jason!
