Students in the School of Education will see plenty of new faces at the front of their classrooms this year. With 18 professors coming on board, the school is set to welcome the largest group of new faculty hires in its 82-year history.

"Our academic departments have attracted a tremendous pool of new talent,"says Dean Julie Underwood. "Each candidate brings an exceptional record of teaching, research and service, and I am confident that they will be valuable assets to the school, our students and our partners."

Cellmer Chair in English Education, is a former public elementary and high school teacher who has worked extensively with youth in urban schools andelsewhere throughout the United States.
