Adam Holden, Chair of Teacher Education, was quoted in the Kansas City Star about teacher training and our new residency program piloted this fall.
The quality of the classroom teacher remains the most significant in-school factor determining a child’s success. The quest for stronger schools is putting increased focus on teacher preparation, pushing for more rigor and stiffer testing for teacher candidates, not without concerns.

Get a sneak peek of The Department of Teacher Education Tiger Tots' new reclaimed wood playground equipment!

As part of a Dane G. Hansen Foundation grant, Tiger Tots Nurtury Center received funds for playground improvements on Jan. 19. Tiger Tots is an on-campus daycare and preschool center for FHSU employees and students. New equipment will replace older plastic play structures.

To promote sustainable practices, the Tiger Tots staff is reaching out to the community and partnering with Hays Planing Mill to use trees that were already taken down around town. One tree had fallen on a house and other small trees were removed to allow growth for nearby trees. Teaching children about citizenship and modeling how to be a good citizen is a very important component of this project. Tiger Tots staff are ensuring the children know that the trees were not cut down for their playground – the children will get to go on a field trip to see where some of the smaller trees were cut down. Hays Planing Mill designed the playground pieces based on pictures supplied by Tiger Tots staff and has already installed the first pieces of the new equipment.

New items already completed include a balance beam, a swing frame and chairs made of cut logs. Grant funds will also be used to purchase a Web Riderz Swing that will help promote sensory integration. Items still being constructed from reclaimed wood are numbered tree trunk stepping stones, a kitchen area, science table and a musical instrument wall of pots and pans donated by families of Tiger Tots. This project is also teaching children to recycle and repurpose items that would normally be thrown out. Pallets were donated by Walmart for the musical instrument wall and sandbox backdrop which will house recycled items for sand play.

I have never been much of a technology guy and in my opinion doing a majority of teaching stuff over technology only drives young students to spend most of their days on things such as social media, games, etc. You always here about how a lot people wished kids got involved more outdoors and such , but when you're teaching them over technology throughout the school day it drives them to become engaged more with it all outside of school which in result takes away from time outdoors and just enjoying life hands-on the way it should be. Is that bad of me that I feel this way and want to stay away from technology with my students when I become a teacher?

Maybe you could inspire them to love outdoor activities, using technology; it's their world.

Today is the deadline to finalize/pay for classes for the Fall 2014 semester. August 6th is the Enrollment Deadline! Pre-enrolled classes will be dropped from the Student Schedule if enrollment is not finalized on TigerEnroll by 11:59 p.m. CT.

Even if you think you've finalized, get on TigerEnroll to double check.  Once logged in, you should see all five tabs with a green checkmark.  This means that you are officially enrolled.
