COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus State University's Early Childhood Education Program has been selected for the Distinguished Program in Teacher Education Award for 2016-2017 by the Georgia Association of Teacher Educators.
The award recognizes and honors outstanding teacher education programs which exemplify excellence in program development and administration in the state of Georgia.
"We collaborate with our partner schools. Our faculty go out into the elementary schools and teach our university classes on sight. They collaborate with the classroom teachers. The preservice teacher candidates and classroom teachers co-teach," said Dr. Jan Burcham, Department Chair and Program Coordinator for CSU's Teacher Leadership Program.
The ECED program will be honored on Thursday, Oct. 27 at the GATE annual conference in Young Harris, GA.
