Opportunity for current juniors and seniors, planning on going into teaching.
With enrollment in educator preparation programs declining across our state and country, the teacher shortage has a potential long-lasting impact on our children’s future. The School of Education at Millikin University has mobilized to meet this challenge with a focus on promoting Education as a viable, exciting, collaborative, and rewarding profession.
We are hosting our Annual Conference for Tomorrow’s Teachers held at the brand new University Commons on Millikin’s campus on Thursday, October 26th, 2017 from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm. Attendees will actively participate in best practices in the field of Education, including ESL, STEAM, and Literacy activities, and attend an education class in the Education major of their choice: Art, Early Childhood, Elementary, English, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Science, Social Science/History, or Spanish Education. Attendees will also tour a Professional Development School partner to see Project-Based Learning and Project Approach instruction in action.
Juniors or seniors in high school may begin the conference early by checking in on Wednesday, October 25th after 5:00 pm.
Because attendance at a professional conference shows their commitment to education, we are awarding a $500 scholarship to Millikin University to all conference attendees.
