The Doctor of Education, E.d.D., in career and technical education was approved by the UW System Board of Regents in early February, and final approval was granted by the Higher Learning Commission in early October. The commission, part of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, is UW-Stout s accrediting body. A review team visited during the summer and was impressed by its findings. The final report submitted to the Higher Learning Commission by the review team was glowing, said Carol Mooney, program director of the educational specialist degree and new doctoral degree. The consultants noted that the faculty had great confidence and expertise to offer the program. They were impressed with the level of research faculty were engaged in, the credentials of the faculty as well as the excitement and the desire to launch the degree. The degree aligns with current and traditional university goals, the mission of the polytechnic university and fills a need, said Mooney. The degree is career-oriented and designed for working professionals involved in workforce development, which includes career and technical education leaders, teacher-leaders and administrators.

2 Director s Message: The School of Education has a lot to celebrate Brian McAlister, School of Education The career and technical education program at UW-Stout has a rich history. In keeping with James Huff Stout s vision of a manual training school for men and women, early on the university offered a bachelor s degree in vocational education. It has since been merged with technical education and in 2002 renamed career and technical education and training. In 1935, the university added a master s degree in vocational education now named career and technical education. In 1968, the university offered its first educational specialist degree, once again in the field of career and technical education. The School of Education Mission: The School of Education faculty and staff will engage in exemplary teaching, research, and service to ensure that graduates of the School become successful professional educators. Vision: The School of Education faculty and staff have the vision of preparing teachers and other professional educators who are reflective practitioners and engage in evidence-based practice. School of Education 267 Heritage Hall University of Wisconsin-Stout Menomonie, Wisconsin Phone: 715/ Online: Brian McAlister With the addition of the doctorate in 2013, the career and technical education program has the distinction of offering four degrees, more than any other program at the university. The approval process for a new doctoral program requires a team effort. But I d like to express a special word of thanks to Carol Mooney for her tireless effort shepherding the new program through an arduous, multistep process. I hope, by reading the pages of this newsletter, you will join me in celebrating the quality of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. Our students are earning scholarships; our faculty and staff are honored with service and teaching awards; and our alumni are performing so well that they are recognized with prestigious national awards. The School of Education has a lot to be proud of, and I am grateful to be part of such a quality organization. Please remember to let me know if you have anything that I can help you celebrate.

3 School of Education awards With privilege comes responsibility; Dang Yang winner of Robert S. Sedlak Spirit of Community Award Dang Yang, multicultural recruitment and retention coordinator, received a unanimous vote by faculty and staff. Yang, who lives in Eau Claire, is an involved member of his community. By volunteering for the Eau Claire Area Hmong Mutual Assistance Association, he provides leadership, mentoring and Dang Yang college preparatory skills to middle and high school students. Yang s involvement with youth his passion stems from feelings of responsibility. With the understanding that I m in a position of privilege plus luck and a lot of hard work it is my responsibility to reach out, he said. Yang is co-founder and co-chair of the Hmong Professionals of the Chippewa Valley, which focuses on providing self-empowerment opportunities to the Hmong community. He also presents on Hmong culture to the Eau Claire school district and UW-Stout. Yang, from Wausau, has a bachelor s degree from UW-Eau Claire and has just finished coursework for a master s degree from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He will be the first of his family to get a master s. He and his two older sisters were first-generation college students. The award, with a monetary gift of $300, was established in It recognizes a faculty or staff member within the School of Education or a related unit in the university who demonstrates the same commitment and leadership that Robert Sedlak exhibited in his career. The award is funded by friends and university colleagues of Sedlak who died in November of Student receives special education scholarship Robert Bobby Nyland, a hardworking, footballplaying senior majoring in special education, received the Hulda Mae Fiske Scholarship. The scholarship is presented annually by the Council Robert Nyland for Exceptional Children to an individual working in the field of special education or enrolled in a special education program at the university level. Fiske, an alumna of UW-Platteville, was an educator who left an endowment to fund scholarships in the field of special education. Nyland received $250. Nyland, from Eau Claire, recruited to play football for UW-Stout, hadn t decided on a major when he enrolled. Encouraged by his mother, Ruth Nyland, who teaches in the special education department, he started taking special education classes, and the more he learned the more he was convinced special education was the major for him. I decided to stick with it, he said. Nyland will start student teaching next spring, but through his classes he has had the opportunity to work with students with special needs. At Putnam Heights Elementary in Eau Claire, he worked with children who have mild disabilities. It was fun and rewarding to see the progress the kids made, he said. Jax Teaching Excellence Award Kimberly Martinez Kimberly Martinez is this year s recipient of the Jax Teaching Excellence Award. Martinez teaches reading strategy courses in the early childhood education and special education programs as well as content literacy instruction for the secondary education programs. In her application, Martinez noted a key to effective teaching: Care and support. Kimberly Martinez Early in her teaching career, she asked students to write about an effective and memorable teacher from their past. The answers she got were basic and uncomplicated. The most consistent and important characteristic emphasized was simply the capacity the teachers had to care about their students, she said. Martinez takes this lesson to heart and strives to create a caring and supportive environment in her classrooms. First and foremost is my desire to treat students as important and integral members of my classroom so that they feel that their knowledge, thoughts and theories are valuable to our learning community, she said. She also provides explicit instruction and lots of time for students to practice what they learn. Students, in support of her award, give proof to her nurturing and respectful philosophy. Dr. Martinez makes the extra effort to get to know her students, and if I have questions I feel comfortable asking her for help, one student said. The Jax Teaching Excellence Award was established in 2004 by Judy and Joe Jax. The award recognizes career achievements in teaching for SOE faculty or staff. At Eau Claire Memorial High School, he has worked in the severe disabilities classes. Once again, he found the work fun and rewarding. The students would ask the teacher when I d be coming, he said. They were enthusiastic and always excited to see me, he said. Through his prestudent teaching experiences, his choice for a major has been confirmed. Being a college student also seems to fit this 6-foot-1-inch, 210 pound Blue Devils fullback well. He has received the Chancellor s Award for the last three semesters and has a 3.75 GPA. Nyland s future goals include working with students with emotional and behavioral disorders and being a personal trainer on the side. The School of Education at UW-Stout» Benchmarks 3

4 Alumnus Mike McRaith looking for answers How do schools encourage students to stay committed, to persevere? What makes one student give up while another refuses to? According to Mike McRaith, as well as other educators and Mike McRaith educational psychologists, it may boil down to one simple four-letter word: Grit. McRaith, from Rice Lake, has been a guidance counselor at Enosburg Falls High School in Vermont since 2009 and recently accepted the position of principal at Enosburg Falls Middle School. He graduated from UW-Stout with a master s degree in school counseling in McRaith was named a Rowland Fellow this summer and took a fall sabbatical to visit and observe schools with perseverance programs. His mission is to promote a school culture of perseverance, resiliency and, you guessed it, grit, at Enosburg Falls Middle School. He hopes to inculcate these characteristics to improve student learning and close the achievement gap. The Rowland Foundation provides Vermont secondary school educators with a unique professional development and leadership opportunity and the resources to positively affect student achievement, the culture and climate of their schools. McRaith s district was awarded $100,000 to develop a transformational project. With insights gained from observing other schools, his project is to transform the culture of his school. In support of this endeavor, he will join a monthly discussion board on Angela Duckworth's research for the next eight months at the University of Pennsylvania. Duckworth, an associate professor in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, has conducted research indicating that two traits predict success in life: grit and self-control. Prior to his job in Enosburg Falls, McRaith taught at an elementary school in Japan for two years; he also worked as a manager in a start-up manufacturing company in Chippewa Falls. McRaith decided to pursue a master s degree, and since working with kids was a natural fit, he chose UW-Stout. I had heard that Stout had a well-respected school counseling program, so I applied and was excited to be accepted, he said. McRaith s time at UW-Stout was fruitful. He found support and encouragement. I felt like Jackie Weissenburger really saw my full potential and pushed me to realize it, he said. He also has never forgotten the words of Hector Cruz and has a list of Cruz s sayings posted on his wall, including his favorite: "Kids spell love: T.I.M.E." Some of my most frequently used insights I share with students are directly from Hector Cruz, McRaith said. McRaith s approach to working with young people is relatively simple. Create a trusting relationship built upon mutual respect. Be available to them and avoid judgment. While on the road, McRaith gleaned valuable tidbits. From Birchwood Blue Hills Charter School in Birchwood, his takeaway was: Vested interest equals engagement, engagement equals motivation; from Polaris Academy in Chicago: Your school culture is largely determined by what you celebrate ; and from Badger Rock Middle School in Madison: The impoverished have no choice but to persevere. McRaith s time as a guidance counselor has been rewarding. One highlight was being chosen by the students to be their keynote speaker for the 2013 graduation, he said. I have loved getting to know the students. It s wonderful to see them go through struggles and then turn things around, he said. To follow McRaith refer to his website, Almena Elementary School visit Alumna Carisa Schlosser brings her third-grade students from the small northern Wisconsin town of Almena for a visit to campus.

5 Students exposed to diversity on 10-day trip Hegemony, colonialism, racism and multiculturalism were topics four UW- Stout students studied this summer in England and France. The four accompanied School of Education instructor Virginia Lea on a 10-day study abroad trip in June. The students completed course work and earned credit in Lea s Multiculturalism and Cross Cultural Field Experience course. Virginia Lea Lea s goal was for students to be exposed to greater diversity than they typically experience back home. Before the trip, Lea required them to read A Respectable Trade, by Philippa Gregory. The reading provided them understanding and insight as they walked through Bristol, once a slave port, she said. They also visited Stonehenge and castles built on the spoils of war, oppression and colonialism, Lea said. She exposed them to examples of religious diversity with a visit to the largest mosque in Britain. Students broke bread with Muslims and Quakers and learned about their traditions and beliefs, she said. We also went to see the show, Les Misérables, which spoke to the French revolution, hegemony and the power of elites to suppress resistance, Lea said. Lea, from Britain, used to teach at Crawley, a school with a diverse enrollment. She introduced the foursome to students at the school. They were able to form relationships with local, immigrant and migrant students from British ex- and current colonies, Lea said. I ve not only learned so much about other people and their cultures, religion and beliefs but I have also learned a lot about Sips for scholarships winners The School of Education held its annual Sips for Scholarship award reception in October. Scholarships were awarded to one undergraduate and one graduate student pursuing education degrees. Jody Shong, of Strum, received the undergraduate award. She is a senior majoring in early childhood education and a firstgeneration college student. Shong, passionate about working with young children, has more than 20 years of experience in the field as a preschool teacher and administrator. After completing her degree, she hopes to teach in the primary grades and impact students to learn in a new and creative way. Cynthia Bourget received the graduate award. An Elk Mound resident, she is the first in her family to pursue higher education. She has a bachelor s degree in English from UW-River Falls and is a first-year graduate student in school counseling at UW-Stout. Bourget has been employed for two years as a 4-H program assistant for the Dunn County UW-Extension office. I work with the 4-H youth of Dunn County, teaching life From left to right Shoua Her, Traci Castillion, Virginia Lea, Karlie Jensen and Tessondra Krueger at Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn. myself as well, said Shoua Her, from Madison, majoring in business administration. She was surprised at how much she had in common with many of the students and the importance of finding common ground, she said. Karlie Jensen, from Menomonie, majoring in early childhood education, said she couldn t put a price tag on the experience. She underwent culture shock in France when she was expected to speak in a foreign language. I was truly an American, she said when she experienced the frustration of being in a non-english environment. I expected they would just know English too, she said. Tessa Krueger, from Waseca, Minn., majoring in early childhood education, said the trip really stretched her thinking. It almost made my brain hurt at certain points because there was so much information for me to be first taking in, then understanding and then analyzing in a way that was more multicultural, she said. Traci Castellion from Appleton, majoring in family and consumer sciences education, was the fourth student. Lea plans on taking another group in skills, leadership and citizenship, she said. After she completes her degree, she wouldn t mind staying with UW-Extension or moving on to another position. We will see where life takes me! I Jody Shong Cynthia Bourget would love to stay working with rural communities, she said. Bourget chose the program at UW-Stout after hearing only good things from two co-workers who are alumni. I am extremely happy with my decision, she said. Scholarship winners are chosen based on academic performance, professional activities, extracurricular activities, community involvement and other factors.
