Teaching the Teachers

In her fifteen years as a faculty member at Ship, Dr. Lynn Baynum estimates she’s taught at least 2,000 students in the teacher education program. Two years ago, Baynum took her experience from the classroom and applied it to a new role as interim dean for the College of Education and Human Services, and she recently was named director for the Center of Excellence in Teaching and Learning. After teaching kindergarten, third grade, middle school, and college students, Baynum said she still doesn’t know what compelled her to pursue teaching.
