Peggy Semingson, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Literacy Studies
Department of Curriculum and Instruction
Effective teaching requires resourcefulness and special attention to engaging students in meaningful ways.
As a teacher educator and literacy educator my primary mission is to equip my students who are current and future teachers--to thrive in their teaching situations and to become models and resourceful facilitators for their own students' learning in a highly digital age. My role as a literacy educator is to teach what is constant and important about the process of becoming literate while also leading students into engagement with new and emerging digital literacy practices. I model flexible thinking, enthusiasm for learning, and openness to change.
