Comments

Dr. Carrie Dale is an associate professor at Eastern Illinois University. She teachers both undergraduate and graduate level courses, with a particular emphasis on entry-level courses. ELE 3050 is a service-based course that has a 30-hour volunteer field requirement as part of the course. The students learn about community support for children in the classroom, including presentations from a wide variety of speakers, and then go out into the community to experience it. Like many things, however, this course has been impacted by the pandemic.

Kat Stephens is an undergraduate student at Eastern Illinois University. She is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and was a student in Dr. Dale’s ELE 3050 class this past semester, fall 2020. She is an active participator in her classes, loves to write and considers herself a lifelong learner. She is from Weldon, IL and participates in the Panther Marching Band here at Eastern.
