The School of Education at the University of South Dakota recently hosted an event where teacher candidates could network, in addition to a dean’s luncheon.
The events were held in the MUC Ballroom on Friday, Dec. 2.
“This event is an opportunity for school districts to
showcase available opportunities and to attract USD graduates to fill upcoming
vacancies,” School of Education academic advisor Sherrie Bosse said. “In
addition, USD teacher candidates in their junior and senior years are provided
a valuable opportunity to practice interview skills and learn more about the
districts and agencies that attend.”
The teacher candidate networking event operated in the same
manner as a job fair and included 17 schools and agencies, as well as more than
100 teacher education candidates. The dean’s luncheon was held after the “SD Ed
Talks,” event, a spinoff of Ted Talks, which featured six professors
from the USD School of Education.
“This format will give our partners an opportunity to
understand how the School of Education assists students in connecting learning
to practice,” School of Education Dean Donald Easton-Brooks said.
