Professor of Education Patsy Robles-Goodwin, Ed.D., and Associate Professor of Education Elizabeth Ward, Ph.D., were recognized at the Consortium of State Organizations for Texas Teacher Education Fall Teacher Education Conference awards dinner on Oct. 10 in San Marcos.  

Dr. Robles-Goodwin was nominated for the Exemplary Faculty Practices Award for her work with teachers of English language learners. Dr. Ward was presented with the Ben E.
