Today was a big day for the Education Program. Education 118 students used the infant simulators to learn more about how fetal alcohol syndrome, drug addictions, and shaken baby syndrome effects the child. Education 114 students had the opportunity to listen to Mary Beth Tinker and the whole Simpson community had the opportunity to listen to Mary Beth Tinker, during her public forum, talk about Tinker and Des Moines. Pictures don't do the day justice but enjoy a little bit of how we spent our day! It was a powerful one!!

Anyone been there? :)

MAT Graduates Follow Their Calling to Travel and Teach –

Love seeing some of our MAT graduates sharing their story. We'd love to hear yours too!

“The history and philosophy department were a huge part of my undergraduate career, as was the Iowa History Center at Simpson,” Allie Walker said. “The passion that I have for teaching is largely due to the experiences I had in those classrooms.”
