New program guides beginning teachers on path to success
Contributed by MISD
Along with Morton ISD and Lubbock Christian University, Muleshoe ISD recently started a new program for Alternative Certified Teachers to finalize their certification.
This pilot program was developed through the brainstorming of Dr. Gene Sheets, LCU graduate professor and former MISD superintendent; Dani Heathington, MISD assistant superintendent; and Suzanne King, MISD CTE and alternative certification director.
Designed to develop new young teachers to be strong, effective and successful in the classroom, this program allows them to earn college hours as they learn techniques and skills in instructing students.
Sheets, Heathington and King, along with Dr. Michael Hardin, LCU; Karen Saunders, Morton ISD superintendent; and Dr. R.L. Richards, MISD superintendent, are planning the program and training the teachers.
