It was Spirit Week on the second floor of Merritt Hall! Members of McDaniel College Graduate and Professional Studies and the Education Department donned their holiday sweaters and participated in a door decorating contest and a silent auction with proceeds to be donated to Home on the Hill. The Home on the Hill program supports students who experience food and/or housing insecurity by providing housing during college breaks, a food pantry, clothing, toiletries, and other necessities.

September is Deaf Awareness Month, and McDaniel College Graduate and Professional Studies is proud to highlight our Master of Science in Education for the Deaf, which has been preparing teachers to work with the deaf and hard of hearing for over 50 years!
As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, we wanted to share our gratitude for the educators in our community for all that they do to inspire their students ✏️
From our faculty to our undergraduate education majors to undergraduate and graduate alumni, as well as our current McDaniel College Graduate and Professional Studies students who also serve as teachers, thank you for all you do to touch the lives of students!

I might be biased, but this girl right here killed it at her session. I didn't leave her much choice though, because she's my big sister! 😍 A few weeks ago, she was interviewed with Profile Magazine about her HR journey, successes, and what makes HR a value-add department. Needless to say, she's a strong asset in HR for both @GoucherCollege and @mcdanielcollege, continually striving to better the work environment for employees across the board. I couldn't be happier, more proud, or even more excited to continually watch her reaching and exceeding her goals. I love you, Kris! 💙

Last year, the pandemic prevented McDaniel's Graduate and Professional Studies division from presenting Kimberly Johnson, Westminster High School librarian and media specialist, the 2020 Joseph R. Bailer Award in person. This week we made it happen with a surprise visit and presentation of the award in front of Kim's peers, school leaders, and students. In lieu of the annual award banquet, a monetary donation was given to the school for Kim to use in the library to help extend her good work. Read more about the Bailer award and Kim's many accomplishments by clicking on the link below. We are so proud of Kim and the work she does each day to create exciting and innovative spaces and programs for learning.

Today is National STEM Day. Check out what a local school is doing to celebrate STEM.

Check out the cool things that Clare Hoerl and her seventh and eighth-grade students are doing! Clare is the Art and STEAM teacher at St. John’s Elementary school and a graduate of McDaniel’s STEM Instructional Leader Post-Bachelor’s Certificate program. Her seventh and eighth-grade students surveyed, measured and plotted a 4-acre piece of land on a farm in Taneytown, MD to create field-art of their school mascot.
Join Clare and her students November 13 for drone photos and to add color to their masterpiece. These images will hopefully encourage NASA to arrange a downlink for these students with the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. For more information about our STEM Instructional Leader Post-bachelor’s certificate click here or register here to join our Virtual Open House on Wednesday, November 10 at 4:30 p.m. Great job Clare and the St. John's students. What a great example of STEAM in practice!
