(PRWEB) September 3, 2004
One of the TExES MasterÂ© consultants has just earned the Stephen F. Austin University title of Regents Professor, the highest honor bestowed by the university. Dr. Sandra McCune, professor of elementary education, received the honor in July with a vote of the SFA board of regents.
Academic deans, with the assistance of previous regents professors, review nominations and make recommendations to the president. The honorees are in turn approved by the board.
McCune, a native of Nacogdoches, first came to SFA as a student and earned a bachelorÂs degree in mathematics, German and physics in 1970. She received her masterÂs in mathematics in 1975 while working as a math and science teacher in Nacogdoches County public schools. She started teaching at SFA in 1979 and completed her Ph.D. in adult education at Texas A&M University in 1988.
Sandra has received the Teaching Excellence Award from both the Department of Secondary Education and the university. She has aslo been honored with the Student Government Association Outstanding Faculty Award and the University Professional Women Woman of the Year Award.
ÂDr. McCune is an exceptional teacher, and students in this department consistently marvel at her teaching abilities,Â said Dr. Mel Finkenberg, chair of the Department of Kinesiology. ÂI have had the privilege of working with her on a number of research projects. She is a clear thinker who is consistently able to dissect and understand the nature of all inquiries.Â

TExES MasterÂ© is the only teacher certification exam study guide to offer a money-back-guarantee. If the student does not pass his or her examination, he or she can get their money back (visit http://www.texes.net for details). To make an offer like this, the products must be very high in quality. TExES MasterÂ© maintains this exceptional quality because all the technical information in each TExES MasterÂ© product is supported by consultants, like Dr. McCune, who are experts in their field. Every TExES Master consultant is an Education Professor currently teaching at Texas Universities.
