Trine University has named Anthony Kline interim dean of the Franks School of Education. Kline has held the position of assistant professor at the university since 2013.
“Teacher education has been central to Trine’s mission since we were established more than 130 years ago, and we are committed to being a leader in its transformation,” said Allen Hersel, vice president for academic affairs. “Anthony is the ideal person to lead us in training the educators of the 21st century.”
Kline has previously served at Ball State University as a faculty instructor and assistant professor and at The Orchard School in Indianapolis as an elementary teacher. He has co-authored three articles in scholarly publications and has given presentations on teaching at local, state and national levels.
"It is an honor to lead the next chapter of the Franks School of Education,” he said. “The profession of education plays such an important role in society, as we all can fondly recall special teachers who supported, challenged and inspired us to be better both in and out of the classroom. At Trine University, our teacher preparation program is driven to prepare each of our graduates to be the next generation of passionate educators who will positively impact and shape the lives of students."
