Girls Education: Local to global Perspectives, Leavey program Room – 4:00 pM

To kick off our week, we’ll be hosting an event to help students learn more about various teaching and alternative certification programs, as well as how to best prepare for a teaching career while at Georgetown.  During the first part of the event, students will have the opportunity to rotate through 10-minute informal conversations with pairs of alumni or current graduate students about their personal experiences in a particular teaching program.  The second part of the event, will focus on “What’s next?” — for underclassmen, courses, programs and research opportunities that can help them to develop the knowledge and skills needed for a teaching career and, for upperclassmen, tips to effectively market themselves to these programs.
