We are so pleased to announce that Kelly Glowny is the winner of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence. The Chancellor’s Award is the highest honor bestowed by SUNY upon a student. This award recognizes model students who have integrated academic excellence with achievement in areas such as athletics, community service, creative and performing arts, entrepreneurship, leadership, and career achievement. Kelly will be recognized at a spring ceremony in Albany and at Commencement.

We could not be more proud of Kelly. Many thanks to our PDS Co-Directors, Dr. Pixita del Prado Hill and Dr. Keli Garas-York who nominated Kelly for this honor.

These are pictures from Professor Brachmann's 311 class last Wednesday. A retired Literacy Specialist from the West Seneca School District, Judy Sipior, came in and spoke to the students about early foundational skills and how to incorporate music into learning. You will see that many of the students had great "moves". Judy also explained about Orton Gillingham and the Literacy Lab program that she developed over the years to help beginning readers. The students also spent time learning about administering and analyzing running records!

This Friday 3-4 PM | Not So Far-Fetched: Shatter Your Disbelief and Build Your Confidence for Teaching Internationally with Molly Rutter. Join us!
Teacher education faculty from across campus participated in a Day of Scholarship. In addition to our department, participating faculty came from Buffalo State Exceptional Education Department, SUNY Buffalo State English Department, Buffalo State PDS and the Buffalo State Math Department. We spent the day writing, collaborating, and working on our various research projects. Space was provided for independent writing as well as collaborative discussions.

Many thanks to Dr. Pixita del Prado Hill, Dr. Keli Garas-York, and others for organizing the time and space for advancing faculty research!
Hi, can you tell me how to get information on the Buffalo State College consortium with other colleges within the U.S.? Apparently, one can attend a college of education in another city which is associated with Buffalo State. I read that is possible at orientation.
Grateful for any information.
wondering if anyone can help with with a couple questions regarding multi subject 1-6 math test ... thanks!!!
Does anyone have any extra graduation tickets for the 10 am ceremony? I only need one extra and I am willing to pay extra for it. Thank you!!
To all students: Great and important volunteer opportunity available:

With only a few days until The Ride For Roswell, we are in need of volunteer route guides along the routes! (I am riding in the Peleton Friday night and in the Ride on Saturday)

Route guides are needed Saturday, June 28th in 3-4 hour shifts, from early morning until early afternoon. You’ll direct riders at turns and intersections, watch out for rider safety, and cheer on participants.

Please consider signing up with a friend for one of the following shifts:

-Porter Ave & Niagara St - 7:45-11:15am (2 people)

-Porter Ave & West Ave - 7:45am-11:15am (2 people)

Volunteers and their guests are also invited to enjoy the free Opening Ceremony, featuring a processional of RPCI departments, the arrival of the Extra Mile Club Peloton, and an inspirational speech from Olympic gold medalist and cancer survivor Scott Hamilton. You'll also receive a free t-shirt for signing up! This is an extremely inspirational evening!!

If you are able to volunteer, please let me know which shift you prefer and I'll get you signed up!
Run for a position on the Student Council for Exceptional Children! Being a part of a board is a great experience to attend conferences, gain leadership experience, and stand out on your resume against the other applicants. They have a lot of fun and it's not a decision you are going to regret!

E-mail [email protected] for more information.
I was wondering if it were possible to have the NAPDS Conference photos uploaded here. The photos of the candidates with the posters and the presentations. Thank you.
The retreat was very informative as always. Great minds, great people!
