            She will also review institutions' online applications to determine whether faculty assigned to courses as well as course syllabi meet the certification requirements.

            Mild, who received her master's degree in special education from SRU in 2000, has 12 years experience in the education field. She is a professor of elementary and secondary education Thiel College. She has worked as a special education supervisor and emotional support teacher in Mercer and Lawrence counties.
