Jennifer Snow, Interim Dean

Phone: (208) 426-1611
Office: Education Building, 704

One of the best parts about being a teacher educator is the continual learning and inquiry in which we engage in the College of Education. As Interim Dean, I have the thrill of following my passion for supporting and cultivating educators and educator preparation so that teachers realize their true potential influencing the lives of learners in and across the communities Boise State serves. Engaging in inquiry to ensure the highest quality educator preparation programs are sustained at Boise State, I have opportunities to “live the dream” – working in area classrooms, working with local education groups and policymakers, and working with a team of leaders and professionals who make coming to work a joy.

Keith Thiede, Associate Dean, Research and Advanced Programs

Phone: (208) 426-1731
Office: Education Building, 705

Welcome back to school! This is always an exciting time of year because we get all new school supplies (my Ant Man lunch box is fantastic), and we get a fresh start on the upcoming academic year. As Associate Dean for Research and Advanced Programs, one of my primary goals is to help build collaborations between our amazing faculty and the educational community. This can involve partnering with local school districts to write grant proposals to bring resources to districts, connecting districts with faculty on grant funded research projects, or helping districts to take advantage of the expertise of our faculty for professional development or program evaluation.
