Patricia Fallbeck selected distinguished
faculty member at BH
30-year professional career to helping those less fortunate and
encouraging college students and the community to become partners
catering to those with special needs set Dr. Patricia Fallbeck apart
from many of her colleagues at Black Hills State University.
It was her
enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism toward her profession
that garnered the popular special-education professor recognition as
this year’s recipient of the BHSU distinguished faculty award.
It is a blend
of theory, practical application, and technology that drives
Fallbeck’s philosophy of education. In fact, a few years ago she
left the halls of academia on a yearlong sabbatical to teach in a
classroom full of second graders with special needs. What she found
was that teaching her college students about inclusion (special
needs students in a typical classroom) and the use of technology in
the classroom worked.
energized by it,” Fallbeck said. “It was everything I excepted
it to be.” Having those kids in my own class on a day-to-day basis
was fun. It made me more assured that what I was doing up here (at
BHSU) was practical.”
students are second graders or college seniors, Fallbeck has the
ability to relate and make that personal connection that develops
trust and rapport. In combination with that connection, she believes
her ability to individualize and meet a wide variety of needs are
her teaching strengths.
student obviously agrees with her approach. Jerry Kendrick, a 1994
special-education graduate, wrote to Fallbeck recently telling her
he earned his master’s degree and works in a high school with
2,300 students and 18 special-education teachers.
took most of your special-education courses while attending BHSU.
… I thank you for the practical application of information that
you taught and the experiences in the classroom that you provided.
… I do feel equipped having taken your courses. … I want to
thank you for starting me on the course that I am on today.”
a special-education teacher in Spearfish, wrote in support of
Fallbeck’s nomination, “Her advocacy for and commitment to
special-needs people rises to the forefront when I reflect upon Dr.
Fallbeck. … What we learn as students in her classes is
transferred to our own learning environment as teachers—to provide
every opportunity for all students to learn and succeed.”
Outside of the
classroom, Fallbeck has dedicated herself to involving her students
and community members in the lives of individuals with disabilities.
She has been involved with many special services organizations and
has played a significant role as a committee member in the
development of the Northern Hills Training Center in the mid 70s.
executive director of NHTC, said at a recent education conference,
“Dr. Fallbeck has dedicated her professional career to prepare
others to be competent, confident and compassionate in providing
service to people with disabilities. She empowers all people to
expand the horizon on the possibilities and calls us each to
contribute to the common good.”
The melding of
students, community, and special service organizations with
classroom instruction played an important role in her pedagogy.
functions for people with disabilities anchor theory in the
classroom,” she said.
She once told
her students that in the future elementary schools will have
basically two kinds of teachers: librarians and special-education
teachers. Today, with inclusion the mainstream approach, that
prediction is on target. She also advocates the use of technology to
ease the burden of documentation and paper work that buries
today’s special-education teacher. It’s just another example of
combining theory with a practical solution that has helped so many
of her students prepare for the careers in the classroom.
addition to teaching hundreds of special-education majors and
supervising many student teachers, she has been actively involved
with professional special education, mental retardation and
education associations at the local, state and regional levels. She
was responsible for starting student organizations such as the
Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and the American Association
of Mental Retardation (AAMR). Her involvement has earned her much
She is a
two-time winner of the Mildred C. Thomson Award from Region VIII of
the American Association on Mental Retardation. She also earned
recognition twice as South Dakota Educator of the Year by the
Association of Retarded Citizens. At BHSU she was recognized as
advisor of the year in 1994.
busy career, she has maintained a keen sense of humor, served as a
mentor to new faculty, updated her technology skills, and has been
devoted to Black Hills State University by going beyond what is
required to get the job done.
“She is a
compassionate educator and ambassador of good will,” said
colleague Kristi Pearce. “This faculty member truly ‘walks the
55, will be taking early retirement this year, not because her work
is finished or that she has given her all to higher education, but
because she has new priorities. Her family has special needs, and
she’s answering the call.
Anderson presents paper at science conference
Steve Anderson, professor of geology and planetary science at Black
Hill State University, recently co-authored a paper presented at the
Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, Texas.
The NASA-funded study "Large volcanoes on Venus: Ten
case studies" reports results of a project designed to study
the eruptive histories of large Venusian volcanoes, and involves
detailed mapping of structures and flows in the summit regions and
on the flanks of volcanoes that have diameters exceeding 500 miles.
The study found few similarities between volcanoes, suggesting that
each has a
unique history that may be influenced by local geologic
processes rather than large-scale regional tectonics.
The BH geologist
will continue his volcano research this summer with a trip to Peru
where he and BH student Shawn McColley will visit Sabancaya volcano
to map lava flows. They will be working with researchers from the
University of Maryland.
Anderson earned his Ph.D. in geology at Arizona State
University in 1990. He has published multiple articles and papers on
his research related to volcanoes and lava flows. He has been a
member of the science faculty at BHSU since 1991.
Foundation grant supports curriculum material at BHSU Library - Top
Linda Allbee, acquisitions librarian for the E. Y. Berry Library-Learning
Center at Black Hills State University, recently received a grant in
the amount of $3,500 for the purchase of books and curriculum
material related to the study of democracy and development of civic
The library was approved for funding through the BHSU Chiesman Endowment
for 2002. The Chiesman Foundation For Democracy Inc. “is a
nonpartisan, nonsectarian organization that serves as a forum
channel to provide greater awareness of the meaning and practice of
democracy while encouraging all citizens to actively participate in
the democratic process.”
These new materials will be a valuable resource to the library and the
university’s social science department as well as to teachers in
the public school system.
This is the fourth year that
the BHSU library has received funds through the Chiesman Foundation
for curriculum materials.
Homestake legacy symposium to be held on
BHSU campus May 3 - Top
The Leland D. Case Library
for Western Historical Studies at Black Hills State University, in
conjunction with the Friends of Case Library, is sponsoring a Homestake
Legacy Symposium Friday, May 3 at 1 p.m. in the Yellow Jacket Legacy
Room of the David B. Miller Student Union.
Duane Smith of Fort Lewis
College, Durango, Colo., will be one of the featured speakers. He is a
nationally recognized mining historian, and recently wrote the Homestake
history titled "Staking a Claim: The Evolution of Homestake Mining
Company." His talk is called “‘Here’s to low grade ore, and
plenty of it: the Homestake’s Heritage.”
Smith received his
education at the University of Colorado and has taught at Fort Lewis
College since 1964. At Fort Lewis he developed one of the nation’s
first mining history courses, and was named Colorado professor of the
year in 1990. He was one of the founding fathers of the Mining History
Smith has published 36
books, most on mining topics. When not pursuing history, he ardently
follows the Chicago Cubs.
Don Howe of Spearfish will
join Smith as a speaker. Howe held a variety of jobs at the Homestake
Mine during his 43 years of employment, including director of public
affairs. Howe will reflect on some of his experiences at the mine and in
handling public relations. Besides working at the Homestake, he has also
been an active supporter of the Case Library at BHSU.
Rounding out the program will be Wayne Paananen of Lead who will show
video footage that he has taken of the Homestake. As part of his
presentation, Paananen will show “Homestake
. . . more than a gold mine: A Tribute to Homestake Mining
Company.” He is a native of the Northern Black Hills, and after
leaving the Hills for a time, he returned in 1985 and started his video
company, Historical Footprints. Paananen has been taking videos of the
Homestake mine for over 16 years, including the closing activities.
Personnel from the
Homestake Visitors Center will also be on hand to sell copies of
Smith’s Homestake history "Staking a Claim." This will be the
perfect opportunity to have Smith autograph a copy. Paananen will also
have Homestake videos for purchase, and the Friends of Case Library will
be selling copies of the new book "Chasing the Glitter: Black Hills
Mining, 1874-1959." The South Dakota State Historical Society Press
just recently released this book.
public is welcome. There is no charge for the symposium, and parking is
available in university parking lots.
Hicks family donates telescope and
astronomy material to science department - Top
students at Black Hills State have been gazing at stars and planets
and reading literature about astronomy thanks to a gift in the
memory of Alan J. Hicks. His wife, Darleen Hicks, and daughter,
Carol Reausaw, a BHSU senior, formally presented an Edmund
Scientific four-inch refracting telescope and a complete set of Astronomy
magazines to the BHSU science department. According to Dr. Dan
Durben, center, assistant professor of chemistry, both the telescope

the galaxies, nebula and plants and prepare research papers. Hicks
was a medical technologist, who pursued numerous hobbies including
astronomy, ham radio, electronics, gardening and fishing.
