Forest City, Iowa – On Thursday, April 25, nine Waldorf students will present what they have learned in the Teacher Preparation Program to the Waldorf education department and community.

“While many see the capstone presentation as the concluding activity of their undergraduate college experience, in reality, it really is a celebration of growth and learning,” explains Dr. Larry D. Hill, Waldorf’s director of student teaching and clinical experiences.

During the presentations, the students show how they have met the ten Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) principles during their experiences in the Teacher Preparation Program. These principles encompass the knowledge and skills expected of new educators.

Presentations emphasize learning that has taken place in the classroom and in group work, as well as during clinicals and student teaching, and utilize projects and assignments created or enhanced throughout the capstone course.

The presentation schedule is as follows:

8:45 – 9:20 a.m.   Samantha Sylvara of Scarville, Iowa
9:25 – 10 a.m.   Ashley Pogge of Corwith, Iowa
10:05 – 10:40 a.m.   Kinzie Towry of Medford, Ore.
10:45 – 11:20 a.m.   Alesha Rayhons of Garner, Iowa
11:25 a.m. – 12 p.m.   Emily Wiebke of Britt, Iowa
12:30 – 1:05 p.m.   Samantha Lampman of Lake Mills, Iowa
1:10 – 1:45 p.m.   Miriah Huntington of Mora, Minn.
1:50 – 2:25 p.m.   Justin Nguyen of Santa Ana, Calif.
2:30 – 3:05 p.m.   Troy Hobscheidt of Britt, Iowa

All presentations take place in Waldorf’s Atrium conference room and will last approximately 30 minutes with time for questions and answers. No presentation will begin prior to the scheduled starting time.
