The Baptist College of Florida welcomes Dr. Susan Wegmann.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville proudly welcomed new professor Susan Wegmann at the beginning of the Spring 2013 semester. Wegmann comes to Graceville from Okeechobee, Florida, where she served as an Associate Professor at the University of Central Florida and the Director of Programs and Research at the Morgridge International Reading Center. Wegmann previously served as the Chair of the Membership Committee and East Central Director for College and Universities for the Florida Association of Teacher Education. In addition to teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in Literacy Strategies, Reading, Writing, and Language Arts, Wegmann has served on the Board of Trustees of The Baptist College of Florida since 2007.

"Dr. Wegmann brings to our faculty a wonderful blend of keen intellect, professional expertise and experience, and a heart centered on teaching what really matters to reach the world for Christ," stated BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. "We are delighted to welcome Dr. Wegmann and her family to the BCF family and to Graceville."

Wegmann earned her bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida in 1985, master's degree from the University of Mississippi in 1996, and Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 2001. Wegmann brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise to the classroom as she is a recognized conference presenter, has won numerous teaching awards, and has authored books and numerous professional journal articles. She currently is a Co-editor of the Florida Reading Journal, which is sponsored by the Florida Reading Association, of which she is a board member.

"I love being able to express my Christian faith and to worship alongside students," stated Wegmann. "The energy that our BCF students bring to the classroom, coupled with the knowledge and expertise of our Teacher Education Division instructors and adjuncts provides great synergy towards a strong educational foundation. I'm thrilled to be here!" Wegmann will be teaching classes such as Classroom Management, General Methods of Teaching and Foundations of Education.

Wegmann's daughter and son-in-law, Lauren Crews and Brandon Crews, are both graduates of BCF, and her son Chris Wegmann is a current student and will graduate this spring.
