Spotlight on Success

School of Education and Human Services

EdClubREeadingatthe MallMSM Education Club collaborated with Frederick County Reading Council for Reading at the Mall. It was an event where children, parents and volunteers had miles of smiles as: books were given away; stories were told in English & Spanish and interpreted in Sign Language; and bookmarks were made by children to take home.  They estimated that they gave away more than 700 books. 






PALS2015Members of the Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA) recently invited students from the Frederick Police Department's Police Activities League (PAL) Center to join them at a Mount St. Mary's Men's Basketball game.  The youths enjoy interacting with Mount students and emulating them as positive role models. Encouraging children to stay in school and be academicly successful is an important aspect of the PAL Program. Supporting the PAL Program and mentoring at-risk children is a CJSA initiative that members find very rewarding and is a year-round commitment.  Advisor for the CJSA is Professor Joe Vince.

KearneyLindsey2015As a culminating activity of the Master of Education program in Technology Facilitation students engage in a practicum that requires 90 contact hours in which they demonstrate how they have met each of the standards set forth by the International Society for Technology in Educatioin (ISTE).  To do this, approximately 270 hours of preparation hours are logged as well. 
This fall Lindsey Kearney, a teacher at Ballenger Creek Elementary, demonstrated meeting the ISTE Technology Facilitation standards in many ways, from providing web-based resources for her teaching colleagues, to participation on her school's technology planning committee, to offering individual technology assistance, to providing before and after school professional development sessions.  Dr. Laura Corbin Frazier served as supervisor for Lindsey's practicum.  In observing a before-school professional development session on Web 2.0 tools, Todays Meet and Kahoot, Dr. Frazier noted that Lindsey's session was so effective because she had collected survey data about professional development needs to aid her planning.   

ImmaculataVisit2014The Center for Catholic School Excellence recently hosted a team of leaders from Immaculata High School in Somerville, NJ.  The Immaculata team engaged in a sthree day strategic planning session led by Dr. Barbara Marinak, Chair, Education Department, Stacey Brown-Hobbs, PDS Liaison and Accreditation Coordinator, and Professor Elizabeth C. Monahan, Director, Center for Catholic School Excellence.
