A: I’m Dr. Kim Forget . I’m an Assistant Professor in the College of Education at The University of Findlay.Q: What is something hands-on students are doing now?
Some of my students are out in two different Findlay City School buildings and are working with at-risk readers or students who are English Language Learners. We also have students who go out and work with the park district for an outdoor education experience.
Q: Name a student you can see professional change in.
One young woman I can think of nearly gave up on her dream of becoming a teacher. After talking to her and explaining that I thought she was the most intuitive, natural teacher I’ve ever seen, she is staying with it and should graduate in another year.
Q: What’s the best part about being an education professor?
The fact that we, as professors, still get to be out in the field with our students.
Q: What is one thing you love to do outside the classroom?
I really enjoy being involved with the Mazza Museum and having the chance to meet authors and illustrators from around the world.
Q: What advice do you have for a student making their college decision now?
I think if I were to sit across from a young person and they were to say to me, “why should I come to “The University of Findlay?”. Well, why should I go to any institution? First and foremost, I think it’s that socialization and that ability to mature and grow and learn who you are away from your house.
