Teacher Cadets visit campus
On November 30th, CSU hosted students from a group called Elevate who are potential education majors. The high schools students that participated in this experience pulled from Cane Bay High, R.B. Stall High, Baptist Hill High, Military Magnet Academy, and St. John High School. To start off the day, they were greeted in the Charleston Room by Dr. Fernandez, Dean of the College of Education, and Mrs. Katti Hubble, one of the college’s Placement Coordinators. After touring the campus, the students got to sit in and engage with our CSU education majors in lectures held by, Dr. Zakrewski, Professor Meharg, Dr. Pleis, and Dr. Spencer. Then to ignite the students in what a potential learning environment could look like for them, they did educational gymnastics with Dr. Smith, head of Physical Education. During this time, students learned about balance, weight transfer, poses, and rolls with CSU education students leading each scenario. Students were led back to the Charleston Room to discuss more of CSU’s amazing opportunities available to students in the College of Education, like Call Me Mister and Teacher Fellows.
This event was centered around encouraging high school students to find their niche and see what their next few years could look like. Mrs. Katti Hubble stated “I am excited to share CSU with students who are interested in not only going to college but to be teachers. We have an amazing program in the College of Education, and I am thrilled to share it with others.”
Giving local high schools the opportunity to come and see a day in the life of CSU’s education program is a great way to get students motivated. We want to inspire students to find their calling!
