I credit my education to Ms. Mabel Hefty just as much as I would any institution of higher learning.


When I entered Ms. Hefty's fifth-grade class at Punahou School in the fall of 1971, I was just a kid with a funny name in a new school, feeling a little out of place, hoping to fit in like anyone else.


The first time she called on me, I wished she hadn't. In fact, I wished I were just about anywhere else but at that desk, in that room of children staring at me.


But over the course of that year, Ms. Hefty taught me that I had something to say.....


At AACTE’s 68th Annual Meeting, MACTE will host a reception featuring remarks and a Q&A session with Mark LaCelle-Peterson, Ed.D., AACTE vice president for policy and programs.

LaCelle-Peterson, also currently the  the senior vice president of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), will provide key insights into assessment standards for national accreditation, specifically in regards to creating an evidence-based approach to evaluating performance in preparing beginning teachers.
