Intervention Specialist students present at CEC-TED conference

intervention-columbusFour Marietta College Education students — each one majoring in Intervention Specialist — presented at the second annual CEC-TED conference held at the Ohio Opportunities for People with Disabilities at the James A. Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus in late March.

Six other Teacher Education Programs — Mount Saint Mary's, Ashland University, Miami of Ohio, Capital, Lake Erie College and the University of Cincinnati— attended the conference with Marietta.

Nick Brady ’15 (Avon Lake, Ohio) and Katie Parks ’14 (Rinard Mills, Ohio) presented on the Professional School Partnership that the Education Department has with Beverly-Center Elementary School.  

Hayley Montgomery ’15 (New Albany, Ohio) and Miles Alexander ’14 (Bellbrook, Ohio) talked about their involvement in the Pioneer Pipeline Program — a collaboration with Warren High School that places a multi-categorical classroom on location at Marietta College. The participants involved from Warren High School gain beneficial social/recreational skills, academic skills and employment training.

Led by Kelly Querry, an intervention specialist teacher, each Pioneer Pipeline Participant is paired up with a peer mentor that accompanies them throughout their day at Marietta College.

A celebration of success for the Pioneer Pipeline Program will be held at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 23, in the Trustee Conference Room.

Each semester students in the Intervention Specialist program takes a course from Dr. Bill Bauer at Marietta College and then the students take their key learnings and best practices directly into the classrooms.
