We would like to welcome Judy Pelance to the Office of Student Services as our new Placement Coordinator. Judy’s first day was Monday, June 22nd. She is joining us from Indiana Wesleyan University where she served as Coordinator of Placements and Advisor to Alternative Licensure Programs. As you have an opportunity, please drop by the office to welcome her.


Our condolences go out to Debbie Joyce, the housekeeper on the 1st floor, for the tragic loss of her daughter at the end of June. If you would like to share a note or offer Voluntary Shared Leave please see Meredith Carlone for more information. Her obituary can be found at





You are Invited to Attend UNCG’s Learning Factory Summer Camp Maker Faire

The SOE’s TQP grant, Transforming Teaching Through Technology, in partnership with Guilford County Schools and Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools, is sponsoring The Learning Factory Summer Camp for select students from those districts in grades 1 – 8.  The camp for middle grades students is July 13-17 and the elementary school camp is July 20-24.  Classroom teachers from the partner districts will lead hands-on activities in the SELF Design Studio as campers learn about  story elements, phases of the moon, weather, character perspective and point of view, slope and coordinate planes, and the culture of masks.  To celebrate the campers’ projects, Maker Faires will be held in the front lobby of the School of Education Building on Friday, July 17, 11:15-12:30 (middle grades projects), and on Friday, July 24, 11:15-12:30 (elementary school projects).

Join the campers on one or both of these dates and see the projects created during the Learning Factory Summer Camp.
