Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On June 21st, Austin Peay State Univeristy (APSU) hosted an educational summit, “Preparing for the Big Event,” which provided elementary and middle school teachers from across Middle Tennessee with strategies on how to incorporate the eclipse into subjects such as science, mathematics, language arts, art and music.

New Austin Peay State University scholarship honors late Clarksville teacher Lynda Conner

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When Lynda Wilkerson Conner attended Austin Peay State University in the early 1960s, she had a hard time finding a place to do her student teaching. Clarksville was a small, quiet town in those days, with a population of about 22,000 people and only a handful of public schools scattered around the area.

In order to fulfill her student teaching requirement and graduate, Conner had to travel nearly an hour out of town to a rural school in Greenbriar, Tennessee.

Austin Peay State University College of Education still shines after 60 years of National Accreditation

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Earlier this academic year, Austin Peay State University’s Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education was reaccredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards, ensuring that APSU’s teacher candidates will be fully prepared to enter classrooms across the United States.

“For a school like Austin Peay, national accreditation is really important because our students go all over the country,” Dr. Carlette Hardin, dean of the Martha Dickerson Eriksson College of Education, said. “When they go to another state, it’s important that their state licensure board knows that our students came from a nationally accredited program.”

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On a rainy Friday afternoon last week, a steady collection of umbrellas appeared outside one of the ballrooms of the Austin Peay State University Morgan University Center.

The bad weather, however, didn’t stop the friends and colleagues of Dr. Linda Sitton from trekking across campus to attend a reception commemorating her retirement from APSU after 14 years as director of the school’s Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance.
