Welcome from
Dr. Susan White,
Chair of the Education Division,

Brewton-Parker College

Dr. Susan White

      On behalf of the faculty and staff at Brewton-Parker College, I would like to welcome you to the Education Division’s website, and I invite you to explore it to learn more about our high-quality Teacher-Education Program, which holds accreditation from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC).

       Brewton-Parker College currently offers teacher preparation in the areas of Early Childhood Education and Middle Grades Education. In addition, we offer a Certification Only Program for teacher candidates who have earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in another area and wish to obtain teaching certification. Our program meets the needs of both traditional and non-traditional Teacher Candidates by delivering courses in a hybrid format, which includes 21st Century technology as well as in-class experiences.

       Our hybrid model for all education courses each semester includes virtual online classes, online discussion boards, and seminars in a traditional classroom setting. Candidates may participate in education courses via the Internet from their own homes and participate in discussion boards at their convenience. The three components ensure that teacher candidates have a wide range of experiences and benefit from high-quality instruction, observe and participate in best practices in the teaching profession, and gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge regarding teaching and learning.

       Our faculty includes Dr. Brandi DeLoach, Reading Specialist and advisor to Early Childhood Education majors;  Professor Skye Jordan, Early Childhood Education Coordinator, Director of Field Experiences and advisor to Early Childhood Education majors; Professor Barbara Reid, Director of Student Teaching and Certification, Middle Grades Education Coordinator, and advisor to Middle Grades Education majors; and myself, instructor and Chair of the Division. Together, the faculty brings a great deal of expertise and our candidates benefit from the more than 80 years of teaching experience accumulated by the group. If you need immediate assistance you may contact Nita Thigpen, Education Division Administrative Assistant at 912-583-3165 or at nthigpen@bpc.edu. Ms. Thigpen is in the Education Division’s office in the Newton Building, Monday – Thursday of each week from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

       The small college atmosphere offers our teacher candidates the opportunity and advantage of getting to know advisors and instructors personally. We believe in the concept of a community of learners, and candidates are encouraged to contact their advisors and instructors for help, advice, and support. Our goal is to encourage and support our candidates as they become Reflective Teacher Candidates with a Christian worldview.

       For more information about becoming a part of this exciting program, you may contact me at 912-583-3169 or swhite@bpc.edu.

Sincerely,

Susan White, Ed. D.

Chair, Education Division
