LOCK HAVEN, PA (05/05/2022) Lock Haven University elementary and middle level education students attended the annual Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education (PAMLE) conference in State College earlier in the spring semester.At the conference the students were able to network with other students and schools, while also attending learning sessions on different topics in relevance to middle level education.
The students who attended the conference were Molly Goodwin, Alex Dunlap, Jena Wagner-Ritchey, Courtney Lair, Sarah Harbach, Sarah Shilling, Jay Elias, Marissa Bulkley, Elizabeth Rice, Dawn Brenneman, Leah Lauver and Tymir James and they were accompanied by Dr. Priya Poehner.
The students enjoyed the conference and learned many valuable attributes of teaching and about the education world. Some of the favorite sessions among the groups were, "Putting F Back into the Classroom," which focused on implementing new ways to make instruction more fun in the classroom and "Math Escape Room," which challenged their brains to figure out the secret messages to escape the room.
Goodwin said the conference was a great way to create networking opportunities and connect with professionals in the education field from all across the state. "It was fun to interact with different schools and discover the differences and similarities between procedures and programs within the school," Goodwin added.
"While I am not a middle level education student, many of the skills and sessions applied to both early childhood and special education, too," Dunlap said.
"The conference was a great experience that led to great opportunities and connections with other educators," Wagner-Ritchey said.
