Application For The Position Of Associate Dean In The Ksoehd

1096 words - 4 pages

In an era of declining regard for education among the general populace, I see the position of Associate Dean in the KSOEHD as an opportunity to make a difference in improving programs for our students and, in turn, reversing some of the negative sentiment our profession is experiencing. The application guidelines include the following expectations for the position:
• A prior record of successful development and implementation of programs or special projects involving multiple constituencies
• A creative thinker and consultative communicator with excellent problem solving skills
• Demonstrated ability to link effectively with P-16 colleagues
• Ability to promote opportunities for faculty and students for continuing professional development
• Demonstrated capacity in adapting to changing opportunities and challenges
• Demonstrated ability to work with diverse community groups and organizations
• Demonstrated ability to produce high quality reports and documents
• Demonstrated success at obtaining external grants
I believe the following letter highlighting my teaching, scholarship and service, together with my CV, will address my knowledge, skills and experiences related to these expectations.

Teaching is at the core of all of my professional activities and I am very proud of my teaching accomplishments. I have successfully taught required courses in CI, MAT and JDPEL/DPELFS and elective courses in the MAE. In these courses, I have maintained a consistent record of high achievement. My student evaluations have always been well above the department mean and standard. My average student rating for credential and graduate courses is 4.8/5.0 over the past five years.
Three years ago, the campus designed and implemented a new independent doctorate (DPELFS). At that time, I was invited to be a charter member of the graduate group and to teach one of the required courses in the program. I considered this invitation as an honor, and I feel my consistent record of successful teaching is primarily responsible for my selection.
Fieldwork is the signature pedagogy of DPELFS and as such, many of the core courses include a significant fieldwork component. My course EDL 206 piloted the first fieldwork experience. While the design of the fieldwork project was a challenge, the results were impressive. Cohort 1 of DPELFS conducted curriculum analyses for the Liberal Studies program at Fresno State and for the West Fresno school district. Both analyses were presented to the leadership of the university and the school district and have served as catalysts for major enhancements in each of the programs. Course evaluations by the students and by the fieldwork “clients” were overwhelmingly positive.
I served as Department Chair of CI from 2003 to 2008. In that capacity, I had the pleasure of collaborating with colleagues on several significant projects. Among them are: 1) major revision of the multiple subject...
