Kansas Wesleyan’s Department of Teacher Education selected seniors Sarah Eurit and Angel Wolf as its Teachers of Promise for the Spring 2018 semester. Kansas colleges and universities that offer teacher programs are invited by the Kansas State Department of Education to select two teacher education students as Teachers of Promise. The students participate in professional learning and recognition opportunities.
“Both of these women demonstrate excellence in teaching professionalism that you see in many seasoned teachers and both display a constant drive for improvement in methods and practices. The Teacher Education program is extremely proud of their accomplishments” said Martha Bray, KWU’s Director of Assessment and Teacher Education Coordinator.
Eurit, the elementary representative, is currently student teaching Kindergarten at Cottonwood Elementary in Salina. She was also selected by KWU to present her original research, “Whole Group Integrated Social Studies/Reading Unit” during the Best of KWU on Feb. 22.
Wolf, the secondary representative, is student teaching band at Salina Central High School and taught elementary music at Heusner Elementary School during her first 8 weeks of clinical practice. Wolf was able to attend the Kansas Exemplary Educators Network (KEEN) State Education Conference in February where she was recognized during the closing celebration. The conference focused on education policy and issues.
