WVU-P announces fall 2019 student teachers
PARKERSBURG — West Virginia University at Parkersburg has announced its fall 2019 student teachers.
They are Keely Ankrom, Marcia Buckley, Amy Clark, Sierra English, Jordan Matics, Madison Pierce-Meadows, Kayla Norman, Brittany Sheppard, Dani Sinnett and Lucinda Swartz.
“We have trained our student teachers to focus on finding a way to inspire their students to many questions,” said David Lancaster, Education Division chair. “True learning is teaching students to think for themselves.”
In the elementary education program, students gain hands-on experience as early as their freshman year observing and practicing teaching skills in real school settings. This includes learning key decision-making skills, creating effective lesson plans, developing and assessing one-on-one and group instruction, integrating new technologies into the classroom and more.
“It is such a joy to witness our student teachers helping children be successful,” Lancaster said.
