Student Success Story

Photo of Erin White working with a student.

Erin White, Spring 2013 graduate, writes, "I landed a full-time teaching job before my student teaching even ended. One thing led to another and before I knew it Greg Mohler, New Haven's High School principal, called me to request my resume and an interview. I will be teaching general biology to freshmen starting August 2013!"

"Whether it is researching about refugee parents’ experiences with schooling, implementing 3D technologies in classrooms, or supporting educators with diversity, my work at IPFW gives me the chance of serving the community through scholarship. I enjoy interacting with many bright minds and helping them become effective educators through challenging, but meaningful, and practical curriculum."

Dr. Isik-Ercan, Early Childhood Assistant Professor
