Dr. Margaret Mize is an Assistant Professor of Education. Her areas of interest include literacy courses for majors in elementary and secondary teaching.
As a constuctivist educator, I believe in getting to know each student I teach, whether in a small class on campus or on-line. Courses are designed to build on what each student brings to the classroom. Since knowing students is important to me, I want to share a bit of who I am: I spent the first 18 years of my life in a small town in the North Carolina mountains, then began a journey that took me to Pennsylvania for a bachelor's degree in English and back to N.C. for a master's in teaching reading and a doctorate in curriculum and instruction. Along the way I traveled to Europe and Israel, and taught children and adults in Kenya, Ethiopia and Canada. While one of the highlights of my career was teaching middle school language arts and social studies, teacher education was always my long-term goal.
In 2001, I became a full-time member of Chaminade's Education Division, teaching various literacy courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, and Palolo’s summer program. I've learned that our students are truly outstanding people, and I consider it a privilege to be part of a university whose mission is to "offer its students an education in a collaborative learning environment that prepares them for life, work and service...to build a just and peaceful society”.
