The Maryville City Schools Board of Education budget retreat recently revealed an interesting fact about the town in which we're situated: Maryville has the highest base pay in the state for a teacher with a master's degree, at $52,000 according to new data compiled by the Tennessee Education Association. At a master's degree, MCS is second in the state, and at the maximum level, Maryville is fourth in the state.

Now, we're not saying that's the ONLY reason to get your master's if you're an educator, but it certainly helps! And if you're considering doing so, the first set of courses in our accelerated Maryville College Division of Education Masters of Art in Teaching (M.A.T.) Secondary STEM is set to begin next month!

Applications are still being accepted, and this accelerated master's degree program is designed to be completed in one year. What's more: It operates under the cohort model, which gives students a supportive group of peers that enter and remain in the program with you.

The cutoff is soon, however, so click the link, find out more info and sign up today!
Not only are our faculty members in the Maryville College Division of Education preparing students to make a difference in the future, they're also constantly seeking ways to make a difference right now.

An upcoming book study, facilitated by Mike Crabtree (formerly of Blount County Schools, Maryville, Tennessee, now an education consultant with Top Tenn Education Consulting), will allow MC faculty and students to join forces with educators from Blount County, Alcoa City Schools and Maryville City Schools to learn more about the ways teachers can better serve students from impoverished communities.

More proof that our Maryville College Division of Education turns out educators who are out there changing lives! Congratulations to Nicole Verdino Owens '12 for being named Morristown-Hamblen High School West's Teacher of the Year!
I’ve read on TN Education website about “Job Embedded Practitioner Program” for people with a BS degree that want to become teachers. How difficult is it to find jobs for this route? Any pros or cons? Does MC have a program that supports this route? Thanks in advance!
Knoxville, Tenn. - Led by Dr. Rebecca Lucas, Professor of Education, alumni and students created a mural, based on Amanda Gorman’s poem, The Hill We Climb, for future installation at Austin East Magnet High School. The mural was intended to send a message of love, support, and healing for the Austin East community, which has experienced several tragedies this year. “The mural, I think, for a lot of kids – no matter their race, where they are from, or how old they are – can see that this poet is doing amazing things and changing the world. I hope this mural helps them see that no matter who you are, you also have the power to change the world, even if it’s just through your words.” – Joshua Woods ‘22

Volunteers and supporters included: Dr. Rebecca Lucas, Martina Junod '21, LeSean Brannon '11, Kristopher Seiber '23, Alejandra Yanez '22, Alexis Brown '23, Sarah Taylor-Yeaple '08, Chloe Melton '21, Alexa Maqueo-Toledo '22, Rachel Ealy '24, Joshua Woods '22, Erick Graham '20, Carlos Gonzalez '22, Madison Grover '23, Alyssa Reddick '22, Abi Lucas '22, Sheena Lucas, Nicholas Clifton '22, Felix Uadiale '23, Briyana Clark, Prof. of Art, Carl Gombart, Asst.

Maryville College Teacher Licensure Program
Dr. Rebecca Long Lucas, Associate Professor of Education, is leading a mobile mural creation for this day of service. During this project, volunteers will be creating a mural made of canvases that will include the poem “The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman to be installed at Austin East Magnet High School. To show our love and support to the Austin East Community and the Austin East Magnet High School (with a special shout out to our MC alums who are AEMHS faculty members), members of the AE community, MC students and faculty, and other MC alums/friends/family members will gather to create a message of hope and encouragement--in the form of a mobile mural of the poem. The work day is on Sat, April 17, 10 am -1 pm EST at Clayton Center Bldg B. If you are interested in participating please let Dr. Lucas know as soon as possible.

Joe Fitzgerald III '05, majored in Economics & History for teacher licensure, with a concentration in Mathematics, and his educational path has been very fruitful! Fitzgerald earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Maryville College and a Master of Education degree from Middle Tennessee State University, where he is now actively pursuing a Doctor of Education degree. Fitzgerald is featured on this month and gives the following advice to new staff: "build a successful career is to stay ready, because when you stay ready, you do not have to get ready. If an opportunity presents itself and you are trying to get ready, you are too late." Read the full article here:

Hi everyone! If you are a educator in Hamilton County (Chattanooga) and interested in connecting with other alums teaching here or even entering their first year of teaching here let me know! I'm currently in the process of creating a quick zoom meet (I know, we're all zoomed out 🙃) for educators in our area continues to grow.
Are you unsure of your future career goals or which major you should choose? This October the Career Center invites the Maryville College community to participate in our Fall 2019 Alumni Panels.

Life is not always linear and there can be more than one path to take to reach any goal. We hope that our Alumni Panel events expand horizons and open minds to new possibilities.

*All panels will be held in Lawson Auditorium.

Our annual screening meeting is fast approaching. If your teaching heart compels you to volunteer your time for this effort, please let me know.

Our early numbers indicate that this may be the largest group of potential teacher candidates we have seen in several years!

Please consider assisting us as we prepare at least 8 teams of interviewers. Each team is comprised of one MC person and two local school partners (for a total of 24 interviewers—eeek!)

Screening Interviews are scheduled for Mon, March 20 and Tues, March 21, 4-6 pm. (Actual duration will depend on the total number of candidates to be interviewed and the number of teams I am able to assemble.)

We had great success with virtual interviews last year and plan to repeat that format. You would work in teams of 3 to interview candidates in 20 minute blocks. Prior to the interview, you would review each assigned candidate folder (watch teaching task video, read prof statement, …), and offer feedback that will be shared with the EPP Faculty Committee.

If you can serve on either date (or both), please contact [email protected].

I will follow up with a detailed email as soon as our teams are identified.

Your involvement and support is critical to the success of our program! Thanks for all you do!

Dr. Lucas

Fans, patrons and followers of the Maryville College Community Chorus probably recognize this guy: Dr. Dwight Dockery '05 earned his bachelor's in music theory-composition from MC before going on to obtain his master's in choral conducting from East Carolina University and his doctorate from the University of South Carolina, and today he serves as director of music at Maryville First United Methodist Church.

He is also the new conductor of the MC Community Chorus, and we can't wait to see (and hear) what he brings to the stage this year! Rehearsals begin at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 in the Harry Harter Rehearsal Room of the Clayton Center for the Arts, and no audition is required for interested singers who wish to take part.

It's going to be an exciting year around the Division of Fine Arts, and we're always honored to welcome another Maryville College Alumni "home to Howee" to help us nurture the choral programs that have been a part of Maryville College traditions for more than a century!
