Maggie Veres, Senior Lecturer and the Director of the Educational Technology Information Technology concentration retired from Wright State at the end of the 2016 fall term. Maggie has been a beloved instructor at Wright State. Her students always have such respect for Maggie because she genuinely cares about each and every student she has ever taught. After 45 years being an educator, Maggie Veres decided that it is time for retirement. Maggie is a graduate of the University of Dayton where she earned a Masters’ degree in Administration. She also earned certification for technology integration. 

Maggie was an educator for thirty years in Northmont City schools where she also became very interested in technology and how it truly engaged students in thinking and learning. Her success with technology gave her the opportunity to adjunct at both the University of Dayton and Wright State for many years. Maggie retired from Northmont thinking she would teach a bit for both universities while enjoying tennis and swimming. After one year she was offered a position at Wright State in the Educational Technology Program, which she accepted. She soon became the director of that program. In her retirement Maggie will enjoy tennis, swimming and teaching a bit. Please join me in wishing the best for Maggie in her future endeavors.
