Hazel McCanne Student Branch
Our student branch is named in memory of Dr. Hazel McCanne, a professor of Early Childhood Education in our department for many years. Her work at this university is memorialized in a photo montage on the 3rd floor of the Education Building. Membership in our student branch benefits future teachers by involving them in activities related to teaching and offering an opportunities to share ideas and interests with others committed to children. While we encourage membership in ACEI, all members and non-members are welcome at our meetings. Please see our bulletin board on the 2nd floor of the Education Building for updated membership and meeting information.
