Educators speak to students at Bluffton University


BLUFFTON — Principals Keith Baumgartner and Heather Patterson from Allen East Schools, Dave Bowen from Crestview Middle School, Chris Renner from Lima Bath Elementary, Scott Ketner from Ottawa Glandorf Elementary and Stacy Barker from Heritage Elementary in Lima shared their administrative wisdom for more than an hour and a half recently at Bluffton University.

More than 55 education students from Bluffton gained a new perspective of their future from the school administrators. The six local principals gave interview tips, classroom suggestions and offered an overall perspective of the profession that the Bluffton students are preparing to enter.

Bluffton education organization faculty advisor Tim Byers said this year featured the best turnout and by far the most productive evening the organization has had in years.
