Professional Development

Today Dean's Scholars held their first professional development with Professor Ehrlich where we discussed Laws in Education. The Dean Scholars, along with Kappa Delta Pi offer a variety of professional develops that prepare future teachers outside of the classroom.

Are you planning on attending any professional developments this semester? How do you think they can benefit you as a future educator? What do you think you can learn from these experiences?

Bring Taylor Swift to Campus

Free Taylor Swift Concert!!!
That is something everybody on campus can rally around.

St. John's University is part of a nation-wide contest to bring Taylor Swift to our Queens campus for a free concert this year. 
St. John's students are able to vote once every day in order to bring her to campus. Not only can we win a free concert from Taylor Swift here on campus but, the top 5 schools receive $10,000 to their music and arts departments which is something St. John's University and all of our students would love.

We encourage School of Education students to vote as much as you can and make your effort known by working to win this amazing contest. There are only a few days left in this contest so win this thing!

STAR Barbecue!!!!

Welcome to The School of Education!!!
S.T.A.R. Welcomes New Students at Barbecue

With the new school year upon us The School of Education held its 2nd Annual Barbecue on September 6th.
STAR Mentors and Buddies were able to meet for the first time and enjoy some delicious food while getting to know each other.
Students were welcomed by STAR Coordinators and the Kappa Delta Pi E-Board. Both gave information and advice to both new and returning students.
A great time was had by all as students and faculty mingled with hamburgers and hot dogs in hand on a beautiful September day. Mentors and Buddies made great connections that will continue to flourish as the school year continues. Mentors and Buddies will have the ability to meet up again on their own, with School of Education events as well as the multitude of S.T.A.R. events that are coming up later this year.

What did you think of the barbecue?
Are there any events you would like to see happen this school year?
