Our final spotlight for the 2016/2018 school year shifts a bright light onto our own Dr. Teresa Haase. Teresa's leadership of the MAC department has been distinguished by her personal ethic and talent for noticing where talents and passions intersect in others, fostering and forwarding their growth and celebrating accomplishments. The fruits of her leadership in nurturing students' interests and talents, as well as those of fellow faculty, and her vision for highlighting strengths is a key source for the recent recognition of the MAC program as the 2016 SACES Outstanding Master’s Counselor Education Program. Teresa's insight and intuition are deeply felt both in the classroom and in her role as mentor and administrator. Teresa brings expertise in grief processes, the field of Jungian Psychology, Rogerian counseling approaches as well as a rich knowledge of story, myth and poetry. Teresa stands out in her compassion for others as well as her generosity of spirit and of her time. She is a source of wisdom for the MAC family. When away from EMU, Teresa enjoys quiet moments in nature with her children and husband, Smith. So here's to you, Teresa. Thank you for your mentorship and your nurturing spirit and the many, many ways you touch the lives of those on campus and off.
