Call Me MISTER
A Leadership Teaching Program
The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares young men for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides them with resources that will place them in a position to effectively impact the lives of children.
The Call Me MISTER program is contributing to the talent pool of excellent teachers by identifying and supporting young men who are literally "touching the future" by teaching children. This successful model seeks to reverse the lack of young men who are leaders, role models, and teachers in communities.
MISTERS Teach in the Talented and Gifted Program
During the summer, Longwood University hosted the Talented and Gifted program July 7-18, 2014. Over 170 children attended the two-week summer enrichment program for Region 8 school children. Two Call Me MISTER members taught in the program as part of their Practicum II Education course. Mr. Devon Johnson taught the "Fly Me to the Moon" section and is a senior studying to become an elementary/middle school teacher. Mr. Michael Dunson taught the "Wonders and Mysteries of the Stars" section and is a senior studying to become a math teacher.
Michael Dunson takes the morning attendance for his group.
