About the School of Education

Greetings from the School of Education!

By the Numbers: 2013


School of Education under­graduates majoring in the human/ health sciences



SIUE degrees awarded through the School of Education


Welcome to our spring 2014 edition of Strides of Excellence. As you will find on the following pages, our faculty, students and alumni have had an incredibly busy and productive year. One of our highlights this year was celebrating the important contributions of our 2013 Alumni Hall of Fame inductee, Margaret Blackshere. In 2013, the School of Education also celebrated the graduation of our first cohort of students in the new EdD in educational leadership program. These school leaders are making lasting impacts on P-12 students and their families across the region, and the School is so proud of their success! Also chronicled in this edition is the recognition of the former EdD program, which focused on instructional processes. As with our current EdD program’s graduates, these former alumni have made important contributions throughout the region in a range of positions and leadership capacities. You will also learn about the exciting work of faculty members Dr. Jessica Krim, who was recently awarded a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation, and Dr. Eva Ferguson, who has been recognized internationally for her work with Adlerian Psychology. Featured is the work of students who are gaining invaluable and unique hands-on experiences in the Weight Management Clinic, facilitated by Dr. Bryan Smith.

We also celebrate the accomplishments of two of our alumni, Malinda Bertels and Dr. Katie Harper Wright. Bertels, who received both her bachelor’s and master’s from the School of Education, has recently published a pivotal book on the critical issue of bullying, which she shares with teachers from across the region. Dr. Wright, who completed her certifications in media, photography and special education administration at SIUE, has recently been inducted into the prestigious Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi in recognition of her life-long commitment to education. The SIUE East St. Louis Charter High School’s students and faculty continue to reflect the mission that “Hope Happens Here!” The newest addition to the curriculum is a preengineering class that is part of the nationally recognized program, Project Lead the Way. Our Charter High School students are on the way to becoming college- and career-ready! I also want to take this opportunity to thank our generous donors, without whom many of our initiatives simply would not be possible. Your thoughtfulness makes it possible to provide students with scholarships and to enhance their educational experiences. If you ever have any questions about how you can help support the School of Education’s students, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Doctor of Educational Leadership Program Fills a Need

SIUE’s EdD in Instructional Process Alumni Leave Their Mark Although SIUE recently graduated its first class of students from the new doctor of educational leadership program, dozens of alumni of the University’s former educational doctorate program have left their mark on the field. Established in the mid-’70s, the program focused on the instructional process and teaching and learning in schools. “It was a rigorous, demanding program that trained many successful professors and educators,” said Dr. Don Baden, former associate dean of the School of Education and director of the first doctor of education program.

“The reputation and rigorous nature of the program, plus the focus on research, really added to my knowledge and experience and has helped me be a better administrator.” — Dr. Patrick Anderson, superintendent of the Wood River-Hartford School District

In May 2013, SIUE conferred educational doctorate degrees on 14 accomplished individuals in the field of education. These professionals represented the first group to graduate from SIUE’s new doctor of educational leadership program, which is designed for experienced school administrators who want to concentrate on districtlevel leadership. “This program fills a need for advanced graduate study in education,” said Dr. Allison Reeves, assistant professor and program director of educational administration. “These individuals will make a positive, noticeable and lasting impact on the quality of P-12 education in the region.” Educators spend their first two years of the program working toward a 4 Strides of Excellence

superintendent endorsement from the state. The second two years include the research component and advanced education administration classes in policy, as well as time for students to work on their capstone projects, SIUE’s equivalent of a dissertation. “Housing a doctorate within the School of Education reflects the high caliber of our faculty and programs along with our commitment to developing leaders for our region,” said Dr. Bette Bergeron, dean of the School of Education. One of those leaders is Dr. Patrick Anderson, superintendent of the Wood River-Hartford School District. He said the research component of the degree played a large role in his decision to enter the program. He is confident that his doctoral degree in educational

leadership helped him in obtaining the position in Wood River-Hartford. “I knew the degree would involve extensive work in qualitative and quantitative research, and I felt like that would improve my ability to do a better job in constructing curriculum for my school district,” Anderson said. “The research component was phenomenal.” Anderson described the program as rigorous and the faculty as very supportive. “They shared their knowledge in such a way that we were able to maintain our jobs, but really be challenged to go beyond anything we’d done before and learn at a new level.”

Baden said the program was very valuable to the schools in the area, as well as to the field of education as a whole. “If the quality of the program is determined by the people you turn out, then it was a very high quality program, indeed,” he said.

Dr. Robert Hanson graduated from the program in 2000. He said he applied a great deal of the information he learned in psychology and teaching techniques in his classrooms while teaching at Valley Park High School in Valley Park, Mo., and later at SIUE. “The program had many positive effects on my professional educational experience,” he said. “Students responded well to some of these techniques, as the research had concluded.” Dr. Fredna Carlson Scroggins credits her doctoral degree from SIUE with most of her success as an educator. She graduated from the program in 1981 and spent the next 25 years teaching in higher education. She retired from St. Louis Community College at Meramec in 2006 as a professor and chair of the behavioral science department. “I received the (Missouri) Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Meramec Faculty Lecture Award,” she said. “Without the degree, none of that would have been possible.” Dr. Joyce Ragland earned her degree in 1987 and taught at several universities before finishing her academic career as assistant dean at Aurora University. Ragland retired in 2005 and started a company that raises funds for local Alzheimer patient projects. She also is the regional advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators in Missouri and her nonfiction book, “Dred the Fred,” was released in December. “The EdD from SIUE changed my career path in a very good way,” Ragland said.

Scholarship Program Recruits STEM Majors to Education Just 36 percent of 2013 ACT test-takers nationwide were considered ready for college-level science. The School of Education is doing its part to face this challenge head on.

Students Get New Perspective on Weight Issues While Working at Clinic

The National Science Foundation awarded a $1.2 million grant to SIUE in August, which will fund the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program. The money provides funding for scholarships, stipends and programming to recruit students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) to the field of teaching. Through this program, SIUE plans to graduate and certify up to 36 secondary science and math teachers to serve in highneed rural and urban communities in southwestern Illinois during the next five years. “The main goal of the program and all of its pieces is to attract STEM majors to the field of education,” said Dr. Jessica Krim, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction in the School of Education and principal investigator for the grant.

“On average, the participants lose between 10 and 12 percent of their body weight. It’s encouraging for the students to see this success.”

— Dr. Bryan Smith, assistant professor of kinesiology and health education and director of the Weight Management Clinic

SIUE will award up to six $11,500 annual scholarships for STEM majors who choose to seek secondary education certification. The first recipients were chosen in the fall of 2013. Amanda Hyett is pursuing a degree in chemistry and certification in secondary education. “My advisor suggested I consider education,” she said. “I knew as soon as I took that first class for education majors that there was nothing else I wanted to be but a teacher.” Hyett values the relationships she has had with her teachers in high school and college and wants to build similar relationships with her students. Hyett will do her student-teaching at Collinsville High School in the spring, where 50 percent of the students are designated as low income. Krim said this piece of the program — providing high-need middle and high schools with exemplary science educators — will strengthen education in southern Illinois.

“SIUE is very honored to be able to offer this program to our students, but also to our community,” Krim said. “Drawing high-caliber students to education and providing them with an intensive experience in districts where there are a variety of cultures and socio-economic diversity offers great benefits for everyone involved.”

How much impact can face-toface personal support have on an individual’s weight loss efforts? The School of Education Weight Management Clinic (WMC) is conducting research that compares the weight loss success of two groups — one group has weekly, in-person meetings at the clinic and one group has minimal contact. “Both groups receive the same meal replacement shakes, pre-packaged entrees and all the same learning materials,” said Dr. Bryan Smith, assistant professor of kinesiology and health education and director of the WMC. “But one group comes in once a week for support, and the other group receives a weekly phone call from me.” The WMC offers the community an outstanding resource of information and help with nutrition, exercise and longterm weight management. Traditionally,

6 Strides of Excellence

individuals participate in a weekly lifestyle clinic, which serves as both an education forum and a support group. “But there often are logistical barriers to coming in each week for some people who could benefit from the program, so this study offers two approaches and helps remove those logistical challenges.” Program participants are randomly placed in one of the two groups, and those who are in the minimal-contact group receive weekly 10-to 15-minute phone calls from Smith. This is the second year the clinic has conducted the program this way. “Research shows that with a decrease in the contact level, the amount of weight loss is expected to go down,” Smith said. “Although weight loss does go down with contact level, the minimal contact group will still experience clinically significant weight loss.”

Exercise psychology and exercise science graduate students collect data when the participants come in for their initial assessment and then again every three months for the recording of body composition, resting heart rates, waist circumference and weight. Some graduate students also teach classes to the participants on topics such as reading labels, managing social situations and other behavior modification techniques that are important for weight loss success. Students benefit from their work at the clinic because it changes their perspective on the topic of obesity. “Obesity is an epidemic and in working at the clinic, they see what kinds of issues these people face and how they deal with these issues and situations. It gives the students a different point of view which will help them in their careers,” Smith said. Strides of Excellence 7

Impacting Psychological Thinking Around the Globe

Introducing: School of Education Student Services The former Office of Clinical Experience, Certification and Advisement rolled out its new name last summer and the new handle — School of Education Student Services — better describes its purpose and function.

Dr. Eva Dreikurs Ferguson, professor of psychology, spends the academic year sharing her knowledge about Adlerian psychology, motivation and cognition with SIUE students. But during the summers, she travels to a different country every year, helping to spread the principles of Adlerian psychology around the world and impacting international politics, family life and business organizations. Ferguson is the chair of the International Committee of Adlerian Summer Schools and Institutes (ICASSI). ICASSI trains professionals and families as part of a larger effort to spread the philosophy, principles and methods of Alfred Adler, its psychological namesake. “My father started ICASSI in 1962 because he thought it was important to share Adlerian principles and methods that promote democracy and equality,” Ferguson said. “Its aim is to train people around the globe to focus on the prevention of psychological and human relations problems rather than on merely treating problems after they exist.” Ferguson’s father, Rudolf Dreikurs, was a younger colleague of Adler, and he developed and disseminated Adler’s work throughout his life. “My father envisioned a world where Adlerian psychology would do more than foster the well-being of children and families; he sought to bring Adler’s principles and methods to schools, organizations and international relations,” she said. That vision has certainly been realized. Each summer, more than 200 people from dozens of countries attend ICASSI’s two-week event. The institute was held in Wageningen, The Netherlands, in 2013, and will take place in Canterbury, England in 2014. “Learning how to apply Adlerian principles can be truly transformational for people,” Ferguson said. “The personal development that takes place at ICASSI has no equal.”

8 Strides of Excellence

As the new name suggests, the office oversees all clinical experiences, field placements and tracking of field placements, as well as all licensing paperwork and related requirements for students and alumni. It also provides advising services for all School of Education students.

The business applications are significant, as well. Ferguson teaches a course on psychology in the workplace and typically has eight to 10 different countries represented in her classes. “It’s striking how all of these countries, with different languages, political systems, religions and cultures have similar problems and challenges in business,” she said. “But the very act of coming together at ICASSI helps to build collaboration and allows these people to learn from each other.” ICASSI faculty members have relationships with universities around the world to help them develop psychological education, thereby impacting psychological thinking in those countries. And the business relationships continue to expand, as well. Ferguson is encouraged by the growing attendance at ICASSI and the recognition that her efforts and those of her ICASSI colleagues are getting inside and outside educational circles. “We are continuing to spawn and grow Adlerian psychology around the world,” she said.

The name change was prompted when the state of Illinois moved away from certifying to licensing teachers. “It made sense for us to rename our office to encompass more of what we do, making it easier for us to communicate about our services,” said Gretchen Fricke, director of School of Education Student Services.

School of Education Welcomes New Faculty The School’s academic success is enhanced by the work of its faculty who effectively combine the best practices of teaching, scholarship and service.

SIUE Alumnae Publishes Book about Bullying

Lifelong Educator Inducted Into Honorary Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi

At age 34, Malinda Bertels decided to pursue her dream of being a teacher after she relocated to the Edwardsville area. Today, she credits much of her success as a middle school teacher and as a published author to the education she received at SIUE.

a doctorate in special education and political science from St. Louis University. “My mother made education a priority even though she wasn’t a college-educated woman, and she supported all of my efforts in education,” Wright said. “I felt like it was my duty to enhance the quality of life for others and promote education and learning wherever I went.”

“I always wanted to be a teacher,” she said. “When we moved to Edwardsville 16 years ago, I decided to take advantage of the university being right here, and I was amazed at the great experience and education I received.” Bertels graduated from SIUE with a bachelor’s in elementary education in 2003 and with endorsements to teach middle school and language arts. She was hired as a middle school teacher in the Highland School District that year. In 2008, she completed a master’s degree at SIUE in elementary education with an emphasis in reading.

Wright began her career in education as a classroom teacher in East St. Louis School District 189. While there, she authored the special education syllabus, “Love is not Enough,” that was adopted by the Illinois Office of Education as a model to be used throughout the state. Wright helped establish the East St. Louis/Lovejoy Special Education Joint Agreement and wrote the program that brought millions of federal dollars to East St. Louis to aid in the education of children with special needs. In recognition of her enormous contributions, there is a school named after her in East St. Louis — Katie Harper-Wright Elementary.

Bertels loves her job and enjoys the emotional nature of the middle school age group, as well as their great sense of humor. “My students make me laugh all the time,” she said. Unfortunately, another part of the school experience — bullying — is no laughing matter. Bertels said the seriousness of the issue prompted her to write a book called “Just Pete.” The 175-page paperback work of fiction about adolescent relationships and bullying was published in February 2013. “Just Pete” includes a bullying packet, video, vocabulary words, literary terms, journal questions and a survey. Bertels adapted the book to fit state content standards, called Common Core, and it is being used in classrooms throughout Illinois. “I actually wrote the story a few years ago, and hadn’t planned to publish it,” she said. “I was just going use it in my classroom to teach literary terms, vocabulary and writing. But my students loved it, and they encouraged me to get it published. “Now I’m going to conferences and speaking publicly about my book and how to use it in the classroom,” Bertels said. “The book seems to evoke a lot of emotion in the students, but in adults, too, and I think that’s one of the reasons for its success. It’s an important topic and I’m so glad that it can be a tool to raise awareness while also holding the students’ interest.”

One of her most notable career highlights was her appointment by President George W. Bush to the President’s Commission on Excellence in Special Education.

Dr. Katie Harper Wright has been making an impact on youth, her community and the field of education for nearly 70 years. Her commitment to excellence in education was recently recognized when she was inducted into the new Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi (KDP). The Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter honors individuals who have made significant contributions of service to KDP. “Dr. Wright has spent her life advocating for the rights of children and is truly a role model for teachers young and old,” said Dr. Barbara D. O’Donnell, associate dean of the School of Education and KDP faculty advisor. Wright earned her bachelor’s and master’s from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She completed her certification in media, photography and special education administration at SIUE. She also holds

After retiring from the East St. Louis School District, Wright began teaching at Harris Stowe State University, where she was eventually named an adjunct professor emeritus. While at Harris Stowe, she revived the KDP chapter and began efforts to encourage students to become involved in the organization. Wright continues to be an active alumna of SIUE, serving on the School of Education’s Executive Advisory Board and the SIUE East St. Louis Charter School Advisory Board.

“It’s important to be involved so that you continually learn, as well as share your knowledge. If you are an educator, I don’t think you should ever retire.” — Dr. Katie Harper Wright
