Every year, the FSU College of Education honors several members of the FSU College of Education family for their service and dedication. This year at the All College of Education Spring Meeting held Monday, April 17, 2017, FSU COE honored three faculty/staff members.

Lindsay Dennis, assistant professor of early childhood education in the School of Teacher Education, received the College of Education Undergraduate Teaching Award. In her current role at Florida State University, Dr. Dennis teaches courses including Early Childhood Foundations, Early Childhood Observation/Participation, and Early Childhood Curriculum and Methods. Her research focuses on early literacy skill development as well as best practices for including all children at the preschool level.

Tamara Bertrand Jones, associate professor of higher education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, received the College of Education Graduate Teaching Award. In addition to teaching courses, Dr. Jones is also an associate director of the Center for Postsecondary Success, and founder and past president of Sisters of the Academy Institute. Her research examines the sociocultural influences on socialization during graduate education and the professional experiences of underrepresented populations, particularly Black women, in academia.

Gloria Colvin, a faculty and graduate research services librarian and the FSU College of Education library liaison, was honored for her years of service and dedication to Florida State University and COE as the college wished her farewell and a happy retirement. Her responsibilities included research consultations, presentations to classes and researchers, collection development and research support.  Colvin also coordinated the liaison program for the FSU Libraries, helping establish partnerships between the Libraries and other campus units.  Some of her many accomplishments include initiating a faculty delivery service, leading the FSU Libraries’ strategic planning process and beginning scholarly communication initiatives.
