Excitement is in the air as St. Petersburg College Education interns approach graduation in December. Opportunities abound as our students seek employment in the field they love, and they will certainly make a difference. SPC students are sought by many school districts for teaching positions because they are some of the best, and their passion is contagious. After all, this is the most important profession of all! These interns from SPC’s College of Education attended the Office of School Partnerships fall 2019 mid-term education career seminar at the St. Petersburg College Clearwater campus. The theme of this seminar was Growth Mindset.
Our program continues to grow, and many of our students Livestreamed in for the seminar. The beauty of technology! Dr. Wanda Santos, Instructor-in-Charge, along with SPC College of Education faculty members Dr. Melissa McAllister and Dr. Cher Gauweiler and others from many regional districts, shared knowledge and tips that focused on the teaching profession. District representatives shared tips for interviewing and writing cover letters. They also conducted mock interviews with students, who were dressed for success.
During the afternoon, concurrent sessions were held by each school district representative to share the benefits of their districts. Interns had the opportunity to attend meet-and-greet sessions with district representatives to learn about their offerings once they graduate from the College of Education.
School Districts in Attendance:
The College of Education and Office of School Partnerships is dedicated to working with our students to guide them to the finish line and view glimmers of sunshine when they finally take over their own classrooms and make a positive difference in students’ lives.
