— Several graduates of Ozarka College’s Associate of Arts in Teaching program will begin their student-teaching experience during the upcoming spring semester as part of their curriculum to graduate from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville with bachelor’s degrees in education.

Ozarka College began an Associate of Arts in Teaching degree program in 2002. Arkansas Tech agreed to deliver the upper-level courses via the Internet, allowing students to stay in this area to obtain a four-year degree.

As the program has grown over the past few years, Ozarka College’s Associate of Arts in Teaching coordinator, Michelle Cooper, has worked diligently to organize the students with area schools.

“These students will begin to put what they have learned into practice in a real classroom,” she said. “I will assist the mentor teachers in each school as they observe and help prepare the students with the practical classroom skills they need to be solid teachers in the future.”

Students beginning their student-teaching internships are Jennie Barnett at Mountain View Elementary School; Krista Bedwell, Tarah Lopez, Michelle McCord and Courtney Selph at ICC Elementary; Miranda Branscum at Batesville West Magnet Elementary; Romona Colwell and Randy Holland at Melbourne Elementary; Andrea Davis at Cherokee Elementary; Tammy Gallant at Sulphur Rock Magnet Elementary; Misty Gotte at Salem Elementary; Larkin Grabbe at Timbo Elementary; and Kimberly Hoskinds and Donna Matthews at Mount Pleasant Elementary.
