Dean Michael Feuer honored Dr. Patricia Tate in his welcome speech at the Opening General Session of the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) Annual Meeting. Dr. Tate has been the 2018-2019 President of ATE.

Dr. Patricia Tate, Associate Professor and Executive Director of GSEHD's Office of Professional Preparation and Accreditation, is shown accepting the gavel this week, as she becomes the 2018-2019 President of the Association of Teacher Educators [ATE] at its annual meeting in Las Vegas. ATE was founded in 1920 and is an individual membership organization devoted solely to the improvement of teacher education both for school-based and post secondary teacher educators.

Dr. Sylven Beck presented on the topic of "supervision and teacher evaluation" at the annual School Administrators Conference for the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's Southeastern District. The conference was for administrators from Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, North and South Carolina who are school principals and assistant principals, as well as directors of child development centers. Dr. Beck had assistance from Dr. Patricia Tate who, on sabbatical leave, helped her present at this all-day conference.

Elementary literacy instructor Kim Sloan led the Alumni as Experts: Elementary Education Professional Development Workshop hosted by the Office of Alumni Relations. Kim Sloan, Dr. Patricia Tate, and Dr. Sylven Beck welcomed alumni back to campus, where they had the opportunity to learn new strategies and skills in teaching literacy while networking with other GW alumni working in K-12 education.

Dr. Pat Tate was elected Second Vice President of the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE). This means that the 2018 annual conference, Dr. Tate will be installed as President of ATE. Congratulations!
