VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota’s School of Education will host a teacher candidate networking event and dean’s luncheon on Friday, Dec. 2, in the MUC Ballroom.
The teacher candidate networking event--much like a job fair--will feature 17 schools and agencies and more than 100 teacher education candidates.
"This event is an opportunity for school districts to showcase available opportunities and to attract USD graduates to fill upcoming vacancies,” said Sherrie Bosse, Ed.D., academic advisor in the School of Education. “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 dean’s luncheon will follow the morning event, “SD Ed Talks,” a spinoff of Ted Talks, that will feature six USD School of Education professors. “This format will give our partners an opportunity to understand how the School of Education assists students in connecting learning to practice,” said Donald Easton-Brooks, dean of the School of Education.
