Two teachers from Missouri S&T have recently earned Educator of Excellence awards from the Missouri Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (MACTE).
Dr. Beth Kania-Gosche, chair and professor, and Dr. Michelle Schwartze, assistant teaching professor, both in Missouri S&T’s teacher education and certification department, earned the statewide awards. The two received the awards in April.
“I am so proud to congratulate two extremely deserving recipients of this educator award,” says Dr. Kate Drowne, interim vice provost and dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business at S&T. “Michelle and Beth are not just dedicated teachers themselves, but also dedicated advocates for members of the teaching profession. And the work they do to prepare the next generation of outstanding K-12 teachers will resonate in classrooms for decades to come.”
The Missouri Association of Colleges for Teacher Education is a state affiliate of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and serves as the voice for educator preparation programs across the state.
