LHU hosts home-school community panel of experts

LOCK HAVEN– The ECED 326 child guidance and classroom management course at Lock Haven University is an undergraduate course that offers pre-service teacher candidates the opportunity to build deep content knowledge, support children and their families and make valuable home- school- community connections.

Teachers, administrators, behavior support professionals, law enforcement, business mentors and LHU students participated in a home-school-community panel of experts at LHU before the end of the 2019 fall semester.

Panel members talked with students about course special topics presentations such as friends and feelings, self-esteem and the moral self, stress and resilience in young children and aggression and bullying. Participants shared their professional experiences and knowledge of community resources with students, who will soon be novice teachers.

Participants included: Troopers Troy Hendershot and Lauren Pohlig, Barbie Stopper, Michael Strickler and Susan Strickler. The class is taught by Dr. Suzanne E. Swartz, assistant professor of pre-K- grade eight education and professional studies.
