Dana Oswald, M.A.

Assistant Professor of Education, Assessment Coordinator, Licensure Official

Professor Dana Oswald has been a part of the Education Division since 2006. Because her major role is that of a Student Teaching Supervisor and Licensure Official, she has the opportunity to see students in the teaching field and to support them in perfecting their effectiveness as educators. In her courses, she tries to model operative ways of engagement, so her students can understand important methods of retention that can be used in their own classrooms. Professor Oswald is pleased to be a part of a faculty that provides a support system for students throughout their education and their student teaching experience. She has seen the entire Education Division stay on campus to meet the needs of their students, as well as watching student activities such as sports, drama and music.

Outside of teaching, Professor Oswald has worked with educators in Kenya, who work for schools supported by the Quakers, in writing Peace Curriculum for Primary children. She has traveled to Kenya four times to facilitate workshops and training.
