“This school reminds me a lot of my alma mater and I was extremely excited to be offered the position here,” Sumeracki said.
The expansion of the elementary education provides a great opportunity for those looking to return to school and finish up their degree. The coursework is flexible for non-traditional students and because the upper division classes are broadcast in they can maintain their current lifestyle while they go back to school and prepare for a career change.
“USU Eastern has a strong, progressive leadership team, excellent mission and, of course, an outstanding elementary education program,” he said.
The merger with Utah State has opened up some great opportunities, expanding the reach and breadth that USU Eastern has. USU’s School of Education is consistently ranked in the top 30-education programs in the country, and considered the best in Utah as well as in the Western United States.
Sumeracki started his third week on the job as recruiter and academic advisor to students interested in the elementary education in Price. The degree is a great fit for those interested in a career working in early childhood education or elementary education.
