SOE Director's Message


Dear Friends,

That you for visiting the webpage of the School of Education.  Teachers lead the way in impacting positively the next generation of leaders.  The faculty of the School of Education are committed to increasing the capacity of their students, leading with compassion, and being responsive to needs. 

These are a few highlights to mention as we start the 2018-2019 school year.

  1. Dr. Chris Thomas joins us from Ball State University, where he was a research assistant.  He has a passion for teaching and research, which will increase his influence in higher education through the years.
  2. Dr. John Lamb continues his commitment to improving rural math achievement.  He led a consortium of universities in being awarded the Math Matters grant.  This grant will provide rural math teachers meaningful professional development opportunities.
  3. Dr. Jennifer Jones is directing the Texas Turnaround Initiative, which provides support to low performing schools. 
  4. Dr. Gina Doepker is coordinating the Reading Master’s program.  It is growing and changing the way East Texas teachers impact the literacy of students.

The faculty and staff of the School of Education are excited about having an impact on students through teaching, research, and service.  They are architects of human potential.
