Teacher Champions host successful event for current students
On Wednesday, November 30, eleven College of Education students, known as Teacher Champions, hosted the “Travel into Teaching” event. Originally called “Backpack to Briefcase,” “Travel into Teaching” was the third student-run Teacher Champions event and saw its highest attendance with approximately 60 Temple students.
“Travel into Teaching” is an event for students to gain insight on the practicum/field work classroom, current and future courses, student teaching, and many other topics. The Teacher Champions ran five tables that gave information on professional classroom attire, professional communication, building relationships in the classroom, time management, and common classroom questions. The tables included interactive activities, guides, materials, and handouts on the topics presented.
The Teacher Champions did a great job with relaying information to the college students attending, and supplied them with the advice they need to succeed in the classroom and professional world. The students expressed after the event that they felt more confident with the topics presented to them and that the Teacher Champions created a strong relationship with the College of Education students through this event. Dr. Tamara Sniad and Sofia Bermudez advised the event and supported the Teacher Champions throughout the creation, marketing, and putting on the event. This event was successful for the Teacher Champions and College of Education students. Teacher Champions hope to expand and have this program grow even more next semester.
