Rick Wormeli Speaks at Annual B.G. Raines Forum

Posted by Rachael Wilbur
The Neff Education Center of Emory & Henry College hosted the 31st Annual B. G. Raines Education Forum on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.

Bringing together surrounding schools, business, and industry into ongoing dialogue regarding educational needs and opportunities, E&H hosted the 31st Annual B.G. Raines Forum.

Presentations were given from E&H Education Graduate students and their research projects, followed by a presentation from Rodney Robinson, 2019 Virginia Teacher of the Year, and a keynote address from Rick Wormeli, one of the first Nationally Board Certified teachers in America who brought his energetic inspiration and 38 years teaching expertise to a full audience in McGlothlin Center for the Arts. His presentation focused on standards based grading.

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) nationally accredits the Emory & Henry program. We offer initial licensure areas in two options, the undergraduate (four-year) and the five-year (B.A. or B.S. plus M.A. Ed. in Professional Studies).

A Fast Track M.Ed. in Professional Studies is also available which requires a teaching content area, usually a B.A. or a B.S. in a teaching subject.   

The Master of Arts in Education in Reading is also available and is designed for working teachers. Licensed teachers who complete the reading program qualify to be certified as Reading Specialists in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
