Wilmington College’s Education Department celebrated the successful completion of the student teaching component for seven of its soon-to-be graduates by holding its semi-annual Student Teacher Reception Nov. 20.

Each of the seven students — now officially known as licensure candidates — spoke of their experience and recognized a combination of their cooperating teachers, principals, superintendents and WC’s field experience personnel, many of whom were in attendance.

Some 30 students will embark upon their student teaching experience during the 2014 spring semester.

This fall’s licensure candidates include: Anthony Goodrich, who instructed physical education at Holmes and East End elementary schools; Katelyn Evans, language arts and science, Northmont Middle School; Bethany Kincer, mathematics and science, Northmont Middle School.

Also, Brandi Ahrmann, language arts and mathematics, Blanchester Intermediate School; Danielle Monnier, mathematics and science, Clinton-Massie High School; Abby Meyer, language arts and mathematics, Columbia Elementary School; and Amanda Newman, third grade at Holmes Elementary School.
