Faculty Spotlight Beverly S. Faircloth, Ph.D.

February 1st, 2013

Bev Faircloth

Beverly S. Faircloth, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Coordinator Middle Grades Program

Teacher Education Department

Bev Faircloth discusses how the Middle Grades Program at the UNCG School of Education fosters an engaging community of successful teachers

The Middle Grades program at UNCG prepares future teachers for North Carolina licensure in Middle Grades (grades 6-9) including an essential understanding of Middle Grades students and schools; rigorous content-area knowledge (including 2 subject areas); and exemplary teaching practice. The Program is supported by exceptional, well-rounded faculty who devote their time and energy in preparing future middle grade teachers. Middle grades teachers are in high demand in North Carolina (especially in Math and Science), and the Program is doing everything possible to send out quality teachers to the surrounding school districts – many of our alumni come out of the program and are awarded Rookie Teacher of the Year awards by their schools!

Canesha Hewett

Canesha Headshot

Senior, Middle Grades Education Major, Concentrations in Language Arts & Social Studies

Middle Grades Education Major Canesha Hewett discusses her experience in the UNCG School of Education.

 

1). What have you enjoyed most about your classroom student teaching experiences while at UNCG?

I have really enjoyed learning what middle school kids are like as individuals – learning what their interests are, how they function both inside the classroom and at play, and learning how I can tap into their interests and energy to keep them engaged and challenged in the classroom. Being in a class with real kids and learning how to apply college theory on a practical level is where you really develop your teaching methods.
