COE Receives Grant
On Wednesday of this week, the College of Education was notified that our proposal titled “Choosing Education as a Career” was approved by the Provost. The award is in the amount requested, $83,060 to extend, expand, and develop marketing and recruitment activities at the College level. The goal is to encourage more students to become educators or specialists in fields that support families, children, and schools. Following is the proposal:
Call for Students, Alumni & Friends
The COE Faculty Advisory Council invites faculty and staff to forward names of students, alumni, and friends who would be good spokespersons for the MSU COE. We would like to produce videos for use on our web to promote programs. Please send names and contact information to Dr. K, Rose, Sharon, and Dean Hough any time before April 15th. Your department heads and FAC members should be able to explain this initiative in more detail. Also, please review the FAC notes of March 7, 2019, where this idea originated.
Ozarks Science & Engineering Fair – Volunteer Public Affairs Opportunity
It’s time once again for the Ozarks Science & Engineering Fair to request student volunteers to help set up, administer, and take down the Fair. Missouri State University faculty have always been the backbone of the Fair, and we’re hoping you will help us again this year by encouraging your students to sign up to volunteer. Here’s what you need to know:
- The Fair takes place March 26 – March 28, 2018, at Hammons Student Center (right next door to the Arena).
- Volunteer time slots start as early as 9 AM and generally end by 10 PM on Tuesday, 6 PM on Wednesday, and 10 PM on Thursday.
- Students can sign up on their own at our SignUp Genius page – this allows students to pick the times they want to work, and adjust their schedules as needed. Please emphasize the following to your students:
- Time slots are set up in ONE HOUR increments. It’s okay if they need to come in a little late or leave a little early – they just need to sign up for the time slots that most closely meet their availability.
- They should ONLY sign up for the slots they actually want to work – we have had students sign up for every POSSIBLE time slot, when they really only want to work a few of those hours. This created a lot of confusion and other problems.
- If they sign up for a spot, they need to SHOW UP. We plan jobs and tasks based on how many students we expect to show up – please tell your students we will report anyone who signs up and then fails to appear to either their instructor OR their student organization, whichever is applicable.
- Encourage your students to share this opportunity with their friends – in the past, we’ve been approved as a service hours opportunity, and we are also a great public affairs opportunity for students who want to acquire those hours as well. We also accept volunteers from the community – they just need to be a minimum of 18 years old.
- We will CLOSE the SignUp Genius page as of midnight, Sunday, March 24th, so they need to sign up sooner rather than later – the later they sign up, the fewer time slots will be available.
Any questions you may have, please feel free to contact me.

2018 FCTL Teaching Award Recipient
Congratulations to Dianne Buatte, supervisor of clinical experiences, Childhood Education and Family Studies, who was one of three MSU personnel to receive the 2018 FCTL Teaching Award! Dianne has been working MSU since 1979. She currently supervises university students during their student teaching experience in early childhood education. She enjoys seeing MSU students get offered their first teaching contract to begin their long-awaited career. Dianne was thrilled and surprised to learn of her award. In her free time, she enjoys seeing her grandkids and spending time at Table Rock Lake.
ECE Program Nationally Recognized
The Early Childhood Education Program has achieved recognition by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. This recognition is in place until the next CAEP accreditation cycle at Missouri State. The ECE program submitted its self-study in March 2017 and was designated “nationally recognized with conditions”. The report was re-written and resubmitted in September 2018 and is now designated “nationally recognized” by NAEYC.
International Travel/Study Away Programs
A meeting of administrators and faculty was held on March 7th to “take stock” of COE individuals involved in international travel and study away programs. The meeting produced an inventory of activities in these two categories, as individuals shared information regarding their travel and ideas regarding opportunities for students and other faculty.
Those in attendance included: David Hough, Chris Craig, Tami Arthaud, Ximena Uribe-Zarain, Sascha Mowery, Michelle Satterfield, Gilbert Brown, James Satterfield, Denise Cunningham, Emmett Sawyer, Alex Jean- Charles, and Stephanie Huffman via ZOOM. Eight faculty across the COE will attend the AERA conference in Toronto, Canada in early April. They applied for and received international travel money to support their presentations at the annual meeting.
Highlights of COE Study Away programs in China; Mexico; New York City; and Birmingham, Alabama were presented to the group. Faculty leading study away programs and/or taking international travel are asked to identify outcomes for the program and, upon returning, report how these outcomes were met. Ideas regarding other potential sites for study away and/or international travel include Japan, Australia and Scandinavia.
COE Transfer VIP Day
From Juli Panza:
“A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in the COE Transfer VIP Day last Friday. It was a great success! This is my favorite undergraduate recruitment event and 2019 did not disappoint.
Thirty students registered for the event and 30 showed up (in the rain, too!). Many students brought parents, friends and/or siblings. The Education Advisement Center was able to release ten of the thirty students for fall 2019 registration. Most of the remaining 20 students were able to schedule future advising appointments.
Our student panel was exceptional this year. Many visiting students told me that the panel was their favorite part of the day. Great job, COE students!
The Mini Majors Fair was full of excitement. Thank you for being so willing to promote our programs!
See Twitter for pictures.
Please let me know if you are willing to help follow up with our visiting transfer students. Each little contact from the COE is helpful!
Study Away Haiti App Available from Apple App Store
Alex Jean-Charles, Assistant Professor, RFT, designed an app for the Study Away Haiti group on Campus in Summer 2018. The final version of the app has been published on the Apple App Store. Students will use the app when they travel to Haiti for their Study Away program.
This free app was designed for the Study Away Haiti Program at Missouri State University. The MSU students will be traveling to Northern rural Haiti in the spring. The study away participants will be working with Haitian patients and students who are seeking help for a variety of vision concerns. The app provides common phrases translated from English to Haitian-Kreyol with both an audio and phonetic translation. Dr. Alex Jean-Charles, is a native speaker of the Haitian-Creole language who is familiar with the dialect of Northern Haiti. The app will enable the users to communicate terminology that is difficult to translate using other traditional translation resources. The study away students will have the app installed on their iPhone through the Apple App store to better assist the patients and students they will be serving. The region where the students will be traveling is a rural area of Northern Haiti where there is no access to the internet. The app is streamlined in order to maintain functionality even when Wi-Fi access is limited as is frequently the norm in many areas of Haiti.
