Jackie McDowellGraduates of the Charter School of Education and Human Sciences don’t have to be told about the dedication of dean and mentor Dr. Jackie McDowell – they’ve experienced it firsthand! Still, it’s gratifying to see the longtime Berry faculty member tapped by Gov. Nathan Deal for service on the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. This statewide group of 18 educators and administrators is responsible for regulating performance standards for Georgia’s public school teachers.

“For the past 20 years, I have worked with the faculty and students at Berry to assure that all 24 of our teacher-education programs and all of our future teachers and leaders meet the highest standards,” McDowell stated. “I’m so honored to now have the opportunity to represent all Georgia teachers and teacher-education programs.”

In addition to her status as one of two PSC commissioners representing higher education, McDowell serves as president of the Rome-Floyd County Commission on Children and Youth and is part of the executive committee for the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges for Teacher Education.
