K-12 Principals, Dean, to Address Student Questions
Four local school principals and COE Dean Thomas Koballa are part of a panel discussion sponsored by Student Professional Association of Georgia Educators (SPAGE) Tuesday, November 13, at 6 p.m. The panel is designed to give COE students an opportunity to speak directly to school administrators and ask questions about education and teaching. In addition, the panel will include local attorney Susan W. Cox who will address Code of Ethics issues for teachers and teacher-candidates. The panel is being held in COE room 1127.
Principals from Mattie Lively Elementary, William James Middle, Portal Middle/High, and the assistant principal of Statesboro High will be on the panel. COE Dean Thomas Koballa will answer questions about higher education. “It is important that students attend this event because it will give them the chance to be a step ahead of knowing what principals and other administrators will expect of them after they graduate,” said SPAGE President Arria Simpson. “No matter how prepared we are from being in the field, there is still so much to learn about school systems, the Code of Ethics, etc. This will allow students to have a much better understanding of the education field and help them have a better transition from college to their classrooms,” she added.
