SAS Faculty Achieve Academic Milestone

September, 2010

Shanghai American School (SAS) teachers and staff members earned their Master of Education degrees from Plymouth State University during the summer.

Blended learning assignments, research papers, homework, projects, asynchronous online discussions, assigned readings, and firm deadlines may sound like student learning activities here at SAS. In fact, more than 30 SAS teachers were engaged in these activities as part of their commitment to earn graduate credit hours or a graduate degree — all while teaching and working full time!

In the fall of 2006, a partnership with Plymouth State University began (www.plymouth.edu) and in May 2009, SAS had their first group of graduates. Both the 2009 and 2010 cohort of teachers have taken full advantage of the professional learning opportunities offered at SAS and have been involved in task force groups, teacher leadership roles, curriculum development, and Action (classroom-based) Research as a result.

2010 graduate Simon Power from SAS Pudong Campus has agreed to join Hank Claassen in service as the Graduate Advisor for the next cohort of faculty and staff earning their M.Ed. degrees. The graduates now have a diploma, but the true beneficiaries of their dedication are SAS students!
