MOUNT VERNON — Dr. David W. Moffett, chairman of the education division at Brewton-Parker College, has been appointed to the University System of Georgia’s Teacher Quality Task Force as the representative of Georgia’s private colleges and universities with teacher education programs.
Mary Coleman, director of educator preparation for the USG, said, “The task force is charged with clarifying definitions of teacher quality through consideration of the literature on teacher quality and teacher evaluation systems. Ideally this work will lead a state conversation among colleges regarding how and where to focus their energies as they develop new preparation programs.”
“Being invited to represent the independent colleges and universities of Georgia in conversations regarding the state’s framework for teacher quality will only enhance our already strong teacher education program at the college,” Moffett said. “Our program was recently recognized at both the state and national levels as being one that offers opportunities for candidates to begin to be quality educators and I am excited about this opportunity to be the voice for the state’s private schools in the area of teacher quality.”
Moffett also recently completed work on the Georgia Professional Standards Commission’s Distance Learning Task Force, which drafted the suggested rules for how out-of-state, online colleges and universities can help their teacher education and leadership graduates to directly receive teacher certification in Georgia.
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in South Georgia. The college has campuses in Newnan, Norman Park and Liberty County.
