Welcome to the College of Education!
My Amazing Story
Hello, I am Paul Deputy, the dean of the College of Education. My amazing story is that I was called out of retirement to lead the College of Education and further the substantial initiatives that the faculty and staff have started. In addition to offering a number of degrees, certificates, and minors, many of which have been recently revised and implemented, we continue to reach out and strengthen our foundation for undergraduate and graduate education. One notable effort is the Teaching & Learning program which is experiencing amazing growth and vitality. Early Childhood rocks with a job rate of nearly 100% for students who graduate. I could tell you amazing things about each program and you will hear more about them over time.
Your Amazing Stories
When I first visited the Campus in March 2015, I was struck by the theme, "Amazing Stories." When you think about it, each individual is a unique miracle who was born different than anybody who ever lived, or who ever will. You may not think of yourself as amazing, but you are. Who could tell stories of who you are, what you do, and your vision for contributing to others better than you? I have already met so many amazing people in the time that I've been here and I can't wait to meet even more.

This article provides evidence of the interplay between developing executive function skills and early mathematics, with the finding that vocabulary skills were a stronger predictor of mathematics ability over and above executive function skills.
