President's Corner

Dear USEA Colleagues,

It has been my distinct privilege, honor, and pleasure to serve USEA as its President for 2016–17. I am extremely grateful to the membership of USEA for giving me this opportunity to serve you all and to contribute to advancing the cause of university-based STEM teacher preparation by pursuing the goals and objectives of USEA. I am excited about serving the association board as the immediate-past president during 2017–18 and look forward to your continued participation in the association.

I enjoyed seeing many of you at the UTeach Conference and look forward to seeing you again at the next UTeach Conference in May 2018. Wishing you all a relaxing and rejuvenating summer, and an exciting and productive new academic year. Keep up the great work that you all do in producing more and better STEM teachers through our individual programs.  

—Pradeep Max Dass
