Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) has a new member. Governor Kate Brown has appointed GSE Assistant Professor Todd Cherner to the commission.
TSPC is Oregon’s teacher licensing authority that sets policy and professional standards for Oregon educator programs. The commission consists of a 17-member board, each member serving for three years.
Cherner is a member of the Curriculum and Instruction department and teaches in the Graduate Teacher Education Program. He specializes in using technology to develop students’ literacy skills. He is a former high school English and journalism teacher who holds a master’s in secondary education from Clemson University and a PhD in teacher education from the University of Tennessee.
“With Todd’s intellect, his commitment to the profession, and his high degree of enthusiasm for offering a substantive contribution to the field, he is an excellent choice,” said Dean Marvin Lynn. “We are very proud of him.”
