      Faculty should have an in-depth understanding of their fields and are teacher scholars
      Who integrate what is known about their content fields, teaching and learning in their
      own instructional practice. They exhibit intellectual vitality in their sensitivity to
      critical issues. Teaching by the professional education faculty reflects the unit’s con-
      ceptual framework(s), incorporates appropriate performance assessments, and integrates
      diversity and technology throughout coursework, field experiences, and clinical practices.
      Faculty value candidates’ learning and adjust instruction appropriately to enhance
      Candidate learning. They understand assessment technology, use multiple forms of
      assessments in determining their effectiveness, and use the data to improve their
      practice. Many of the unit faculty are recognized as outstanding teachers by candidates
      peers across campus and schools.


      Faculty have a thorough understanding of the content they teach. Teaching by pro-
      fessional education faculty reflects the unit’s conceptual framework and research,
      theories, and current developments in their fields and teaching. Faculty values cand-
      idates’ learning and assess candidate performance. Their teaching encourages cand-
      idates’ development of reflection, critical thinking, problem solving, and professional
      dispositions. Faculty use a variety of instructional strategies that reflect an under-
      standing of different learning styles. They integrate diversity and technology throughout
      their teaching. They assess their own effectiveness as teachers, including the positive
      effects they have on candidates’ learning and performance.

      My philosophy of teaching is to provide our graduate students with experiences that will
      help them maximize their learning potential. As a recent practitioner with 28 years as
      an educational administrator, I believe I can be most effective as a graduate instructor by
      providing our graduate students with experiences that can blend practical, real world
      experiences with the theories brought forward by leaders in the field of educational
