Members of Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s chapter of Student Oklahoma Education Association (SOEA) decided to give teachers at Washington Elementary School in Alva a break last week.
During National Education Week, the Northwestern students spent time at the elementary school working the lunchtime and recess duties.
Members also presented Principal Tracie Leeper with a certificate of appreciation to show their support of what teachers do on a daily basis.
Leeper said that they enjoy their relationship with Northwestern. A number of university students utilize the Alva schools in their observation classes, as well as serving as student teachers each semester.
Joining the group at Washington in the cafeteria and playground were Robyn Walker, Alva sophomore, SOEA president; Emily Chockley, Beaver freshman, vice president; Madison Malone, Valley Center, Kan., sophomore; and Dr. Beverly Warden, associate professor of education.
