Biography

Bev has been involved in higher education in the U.S. for over 21 years and K-12 education for over 16 years in South Africa and Namibia. Along with her work in teacher preparation, Bev has worked on international education projects including the development of national standards and rubrics for teacher preparation and education in Pakistan (2011-2013). Bev has spent many years focusing on developing collaborations and reciprocal partnerships that integrate experiential learning with structured reflection and informed action, both locally and internationally. She is currently collaborating with colleagues, through a Five Colleges initiative, to develop programs that provide opportunities for local community members, para-professionals and teachers on waivers, to earn their initial teaching license.
