Second Grade teacher, Pauleen Edmonds, was recognized at the USD 388 School Board Meeting, February 9, 1998, as one of the newest members in the FHSU Effective Teaching Cadre. Rhonda Johnson, FHSU Effective Teaching Coordinator, presented Mrs. Edmonds with a certificate and a Teaching Cadre pin.
Mrs. Edmonds is among 20 other teachers representing Hays, Ellis, Phillipsburg and Victoria in the Effective Teaching Cadre of the Fort Hays Educational Development Center. Each of the teachers were videotaped using an effective teaching method in their classroom. Members of the cadre will help plan the annual Effective Teaching Academy, held each summer at FHSU, and will provide input on staff development activities. The cadre is one way the FHEDC formally recognizes effective teachers in the region.
