OLSON NAMED TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM COORDINATOR

AMES, Iowa -- Jeannette Olson has been named program coordinator for the teacher education program for Iowa State University's College of Education.

Olson was a temporary instructor in curriculum and instruction for seven years before assuming her new job.

"I plan to enhance the lines of communications among the various entities for teacher education across campus," Olson said. "It's vital that students receive accurate, consistent communications."

Olson will inform teacher education students about the need to take the Praxis I and II exams. Due to new Iowa legislative measures, students now must take the Praxis I to gain admittance into the teacher ed program and, then, take the Praxis II exam before they actually receive their teaching licenses.

She will also work with teacher education professors with appointments in five Iowa State colleges.
