Mary Schneider (Incumbent)
My first term representing teacher educators and TEAC on the AMS Board was a time of rewarding progress. The examination and updating of the organizational structure of AMS assisted us in developing a more effective structure for the Teacher Educators Section. Our TES meeting is now focused on professional development while issues of standards, affiliation and new initiatives are delegated to those who meet frequently to devote the time and attention required. We also developed the first standards for Distance Education for members who wished to explore this delivery method. Future plans include continued efforts to define best practices for quality teacher education and further examination of effective uses of technology to increase access to AMS teacher education programs. Increased collaboration with the AMS School Accreditation Commission has been initiated and work with MACTE continues to receive a high level of attention. Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
