Seongin You, a student in the Master of Arts in Education Teacher Preparation program, was selected to receive a $2,000 Teachership Award from the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE). This award is for teacher education candidates who are pursuing bilingual certification in addition to their teaching credential.
“The CABE chapter at GSEP has successfully secured teachership awards for four students in our eight years as a chapter,” said Reyna García-Ramos, education professor and faculty lead for the GSEP CABE chapter. “Seongin has raised her two children in a bilingual home and now wants to share that gift with students in our public schools.”
You is a secondary math educator in the process of obtaining bilingual certification in Korean and English. She was formally recognized at the CABE Visionary Award dinner held during the annual conference in Anaheim, CA, April 2-5.
“As an international student, I was struggling with every course during the school year,” said You. “If it weren’t for Dr. Garcia-Ramos’ help, I would not have received this award or been successful in my studies.”
Kandice McLurkin was this year’s CABE Visionary Award honoree. She was recognized for her commitment to CABE’s mission of advancing bilingual education and providing quality educational experiences for all students.
