Dr. Lindsay Grow, Associate Professor and Education Department Chair at Grand View, was recently featured in the Iowa Department of Education's "Spotlight Literacy."

Dr. Grow is enthusiastically incorporating new learning from her membership on the Statewide Literacy Leadership Team into her work with preservice students at Grand View. In the fall of 2019, Lindsay began preparing for the professional learning opportunity with The New Teacher Project (TNTP) to take place the next semester. Dr. Grow included a TNTP publication in the syllabus and asked if students could attend the session.

The reflections by preservice students are a reminder of the importance of creating equitable learning opportunities, including access to grade-level texts, standards, and challenges in the classroom nationally.

Dr. Grow also serves on the Executive Board for the Iowa Association for the Colleges of Teacher Education (IACTE). The IACTE Executive Board helps to steer the direction of the IACTE, an organization with membership from 32 institutions in Iowa with Teacher Preparation Programs. Lindsay consistently demonstrates her commitment to improving instructional practices as a change agent in the field.
