GSC Group Attends iLead Workshop

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  March 17, 2015

For More Information:
Glenville State College
Public Relations Department
(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State College Education majors, Athena Morris and Elizabeth Musselman, along with advisor Tara Cosco recently attended the 2015 Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) iLead Workshop held at Davis and Elkins College in Elkins. Dr. Erin Brumbaugh, Associate Professor of Education at D&E, was the main presenter at the workshop.

According to Kappa Delta Pi’s website, the workshop helps members become more effective teacher leaders. Participants take part in small and large group activities designed to help them learn about transformational leadership for educators, including how to create and implement a vision for teacher leadership. In addition to hearing new ideas in leadership, attendees also develop networking and teambuilding skills.

“During the workshop Dr. Brumbaugh showed us a cartoon picture of a mouse and rabbit from the book Good News, Bad News by Jeff Mack. Through discussions of the illustrations, we were reminded that, as leaders, we need to evaluate the things we are doing and to make sure we talk and listen to the other people that would be affected by those decisions. When you are a leader, you are a leader of a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. That was just one of many things I learned and was reminded of at the Kappa Delta Pi iLead workshop,” said Morris.

KDP is an international education honor society where members are invited based on their scholarly achievement and commitment to excellence in the field.

“Our student judges are to be commended for their professionalism and poise. They were split up to judge several different categories ranging from autism to teacher retention.” said Kathy Gilbert, GSC’s Assistant Coordinator of Off-Campus Programming, who, along with Roberta Goff, the WV FEA State Advisor, arranged GSC’s participation. Students who attended included Cody Carnefix, Clair Gilbert, Stefanie Gladders, Hunter McWhorter, Jessica Parsons, and Jared Shipe.

“Many of our student judges are at the point in their own educational process that they are either student teaching or being interviewed. This experience gave them insight on what judges and interviewers are thinking, and the many variables involved in the process,” Kathy continued.

“I enjoyed the competition aspect and hard work that all the groups put into their specific categories. Plus it was a great networking experience by being able to work with a diverse panel of judges selected from across the state. This allowed me to represent the education that I have gained at Glenville State College and showcase some of the skills that I have developed,” said Shipe who is a GSC Social Studies (5-Adult) major and student intern.

“The conference was a great experience for me. It was completely different being the judge and not the one being judged. The students were wonderful and extremely professional and the conference made me even more excited to start my teaching journey,” said GSC English Education (5-Adult) major Clair Gilbert.

In addition to the competitions, the GSC group also heard a speech from 2015 West Virginia Teacher of the Year, Gail Adams, who has been a teacher for a decade and currently works at Wheeling Park High School.

“I truly appreciate the hard work that Kathy Gilbert and the students from Glenville State College did during the FEA Spring Competitive Events Conference. Each person made the FEA competitors realize the importance of the competition and treated each student or group of students fairly and honestly. Each of the student judges were professional and represented Glenville State College well. It was wonderful to have the support of the best teacher’s college and for the high school students to see a future for themselves,” said Goff.
