School of Education Student from Poster to Profession!

After a full year of teaching 4th grade, School of Education Alumna Krystal Mejia returned to Lehman College to pick up her 2013 undergraduate diploma and finally saw a poster of her edTPA video work decorating the walls of Carman Hall! Admitttedly picking up her diploma a little later than planned, Krystal recalled her first year of teaching as both rewarding and challenging. She spoke highly about the Common Core curriculum resources available on the EngageNY website and reflected on the "assessment" section of her edTPA requirements and how they impacted her teaching and student learning. Kudos to Krystal!

As teachers across NYC begin to get ready for incoming students in September, the School of Education wishes Krystal and all our alumni a successful academic year -- one filled with learning, growth and mastery.

"Rising Scholars" highlighted in the LUTE Update Issue!

Dean Fayne introduces us to six assistant professors who are "doing very exciting research and publishing their findings. While topics and methods may vary, one thread runs through their collective work: LUTE Theme II- Educate for Equity. Their research reminds us that we should be mindful of inequities and advocate for social justice. We also must look for evidence-based practices that will help to close opportunity and achievement gaps."
