The Pi Beta Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education at the University of Central Arkansas, presented the Internship II awards for the fall semester. Andrea Flucas was awarded the Student Intern of the Semester. This award is presented to the Internship II student that best exemplifies the four domains of effective teaching.
Andrea’s supervisor, Jane Sharp, nominated her for her high degree of accomplishment and dedication to teaching and to her students. Jane shared, “Concern for each child was demonstrated as she often remained after school to help an ELL student with her work and engaged her mother in the process in order to help build her language skills as well.”
Andrea’s mentor, Sherry Voegele at Magness Creek Elementary in Cabot, has never seen an intern with the superior level of zeal and strong sense of community. Sherry adds, “I’m nominating Ms. Flucas for her abilities and efforts in building and maintaining strong relationships with colleagues, parents and extended staff.”
Andrea Flucas will be asked to return to UCA in the spring for the College of Education’s pinning ceremony on the campus of UCA.
