Farewell, sort of, to Megan Guise
As of fall 2018, Megan Guise will move her department home (and office) to the School of Education. She will continue to coordinate our secondary credential program, including teaching courses in the program and advising pre-credential and credential students. However, by moving to the School of Education, Megan will have more opportunities to pursue teaching and scholarship in that program as well. So this isn’t a goodbye as much as it is a “see you down the hill!”
