Student teachers receive classroom assignments for fall semester
Posted 08/27/2019 11:28AM

Misericordia University teacher education majors recently received their student teaching assignments for the fall semester during the Student Teaching Seminar in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.

Seven Misericordia University student teachers participated in the program, which prepares the undergraduates for classroom observation and instruction in several regional school districts. The Teacher Education Department at Misericordia University requires student teachers to observe student instruction for 14 weeks in two different classrooms as part of their educational and professional experience. Students spend the school day in their assigned classrooms at first observing and then gradually teaching classes.

The following student teachers received assignments to regional school districts: Kelly Brogan, Easton, has been assigned to ABC Kiddie Kampus and the Wilkes-Barre Area School District; Ashley Gebhardt, Montrose, will be student teaching for the Montrose Area School District and Wyoming Valley Children's Association; Clarissa Gulich, Wilkes-Barre, has been assigned to the Wilkes-Barre Area School District; Michaela Halesey, Hanover Twp., will be student teaching in the Wyoming Valley West and Wilkes-Barre Area school districts; Patrick Joyce, Avoca, has been assigned to the Lake Lehman School District and Sacred Heart School; Eric Levandowski, Nanticoke, will be student teaching in the Nanticoke Area and Wilkes-Barre Area school Districts, and Megan Malkemes, Shavertown, has been assigned to Lake Lehman and Dallas school districts.

The Teacher Education Department at Misericordia University is one of the first universities in the state to be reapproved under the revised state certification process. The university has been offering teacher education courses since it was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1924. The Pennsylvania Department of Education Bureau of School Leadership and Teacher Quality recently reapproved all of the undergraduate and post baccalaureate teacher preparation programs offered by the department.
