Judith Castleberry is a Master Clinician at Austin Peay State University. She is a University Supervisor for clinical teaching and occasionally teaches a course titled Instructional Technology. Her role in the Clinical Teaching area is to not only observe and support pre-service teachers, but also assist students with capturing video and uploading it into a file for TPA submission.
Mrs. Castleberry retired from the Clarksville Montgomery County School System after thirty years of experience. Her early career was spent as a library media specialist. During her experience as a media specialist, she attended Vanderbilt University to earn her MLS degree. Technology was being introduced to the educational field during this time so she attended as many classes possible in which technology was the focus. She was hired by the school system as Technology Coordinator and implemented the 21st Century Classroom initiative and provided professional development workshops on how to use technology. After earning her Ed'S degree from Austin Peay State University, she became the assistant principal for Kenwood High School which, at the time, was a brand new school with state-of-the-art technology. Later she served as principal of Clarksville High School and supported the teachers and students through a complete renovation.
Mrs. Castleberry is a grandmother of three. Two grandchildren live in North Carolina and one near the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. Obviously, travel is one of her favorite past times. She also enjoys reading, walking, flea market shopping, and cooking. In addition, working with "beginning, beginning" teachers is her most rewarding focus.
