Volume 3 Number 2
One year ago I wrote about "new beginnings" and the opportunities afforded by such actions. In a subsequent issue of Impact, I highlighted several important goals and directions for the School of Education. And while it seems like only yesterday, I am pleased to report outstanding progress in many areas, some of which will be mentioned here.
In the F1rst Person: Colin Wilborn, PhD, 2006
Just six years ago I did not know where my career would lead me. When I got my shot to come to Baylor as a graduate student, I was fortunate enough to be given an assistantship to teach some activity classes that would ultimately be the answer to my prayers. I realized after the first semester that I loved being in the classroom and teaching. I also was learning so much in my HHPR classes that I began to get excited about my field. Through many prayers and conversations with my professors and family I made the decision that I would pursue a PhD and start my career as a university faculty member.
Undergraduate Leadership Studies Program
With the beginning of the fall 2008 semester, the School of Education became the academic home for two undergraduate courses in leadership studies: Introduction to Leadership and Advanced Leadership Theory.
Hispanic Families in Transition: an Engaged Learning Group
SOE faculty participated in and led one of the first Engaged Learning Groups, a university-wide initiative developed during the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools re-accreditation 10-year review.
Dynamic Program Prepares Students to Make a Difference
One of Baylor's advertising slogans is "Above. Beyond." - simple phrasing that finds a home in SOE's School Psychology program.
