DE PERE: Mary J. Greenlaw, associate professor of Secondary Education at Eastern Illinois University, was named director of Teacher Education at St. Norbert College. As director, Greenlaw will oversee the scheduling of classes and curriculum issues. Direct reports to her include the graduate programs and the Children's Center. She will also prepare for an accreditation review next spring from the department of Public Instruction (DPI).

Greenlaw will start her new position at St. Norbert College on July 19. Sister Mary Alyce Lach, Ph.D., professor of Education, served as interim Director of Teacher Education the past two and a half years.

During the past 12 years, Greenlaw's primary responsibilities in higher education have included supervising student teachers and practicum students as well as teaching graduate curriculum courses and undergraduate courses in introductory and general methods.

Greenlaw completed her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction: Secondary Education at Indiana State University. She received a B.S. in Science Education from the University of Missouri and a M.A. in Counseling Education from St. Louis University. She spent three years teaching science and 12 years as a school counselor.

"Mary Greenlaw has the ability to pull people together and be a leader," said Elizabeth King, interim divisional chair of Social Sciences at St. Norbert College. "Education is the second largest major on campus and Greenlaw will bring a very different but collaborative approach."
