Welcome back to a new semester. I hope that each of you had a fun and productive summer and are now ready to get back to classes.
There have been a few changes over the summer in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and in the Trinkle education suite. Dr. Marie Sheckels has completed her term as department chair, Dr. Suzanne G. Houff is the new chair. Ms. Tember Smith retired and we are welcoming a new office manager, Ms. Amy Beaulie. The office manager and the department chair have moved into room 223, do drop by and introduce yourselves; the office telephone number is still 540-654-1034. Since most of your questions will be about your program or the fall course schedule, please contact your Education faculty advisor directly by phone or umw e-mail.
