Central Helps Energize Teachers

Thurmon-workshop.jpgCentral Methodist University recently teamed with North Central Missouri College to put on the Teacher Energizer event for 2022, giving K-12 teachers from across the state a chance to prepare for the school year and earn graduate credit.

The event was again held on the NCMC campus in Trenton, Mo. and this year featured a keynote address on “Applied Behavior Classroom Management,” presented by Central’s own Dr. Kasey Leech. Leech, assistant professor for applied behavior analysis, helped teach classroom management skills and strategies through real-life examples with specific emphasis on group contingencies.

Central professors also spoke in numerous breakout sessions throughout the day on a variety of subjects, from “Work-Life Balance” to “Communication and Regulation Strategies” and more. CMU faculty participating in the presentations included Leech, Dr. Jessica Taylor, Sandra Wald, Sally Hackman, Dr. Rebecca Gibson, Meredith Buchmeier, Greg Thurmon, Suzi Kidd, and Sheri Kemp.

Teachers from nearly 20 area school districts were in attendance, including representatives of the Bevier, Brunswick, Chillicothe, Field, Gallatin, Gilman, Grundy County, Laredo, Macon County, Meadville, Newton-Harris, North Mercer, Northwestern, Pleasant View, Ridgeway, South Harrison, Southwest Livingston, and Tri-County school districts.

Those attending the event were invited to enroll with Central to receive graduate credit for the workshop.
