- About Us
Your advisor is an important component to your success. If you decide to apply to the program, you will meet with the advisor once per semester to ensure that you are on the right track. If you are interested in learning more about the program, your first step is to schedule an appointment with the advisor to learn more about what steps you need to take to begin.
The Educator Preparation advisor, the lead of the Advising Team, is responsible for meeting with the student as soon as possible. The advisor will determine what other team members should be assigned to the Advising Team based on the students' chosen major and/or pathway. All admitted UW-Parkside students, in good standing, can indicate their intent to enter the Educator Preparation Program by declaring their plan with the Educator Preparation Program advisor in IPED, Mary Jo Gdovin, by filling out a Plan Declaration form, which creates an official record with the Registrar's Office of a student's intent to pursue an educator licensure endorsement.
Educator Preparation Advising is a collaborative process. The advisor and student work as a team to develop a successful advisor/advisee relationship. Both the advisor and the student have important responsibilities in developing and maintaining this teamwork. The intent is to provide you with a full picture of your requirements and time-to-completion from an early point and to support you as you pursue your initial license.
