This fall, representatives from Georgia State University’s College of Education and several metro-Atlanta school districts will come together to offer COE students vital information for transitioning from collegiate life to a career as an educator.
The COE’s annual Professional Educators Induction Seminar, which will take place on Oct. 21, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Georgia State University Speakers Auditorium (44 Courtland St., Atlanta), will feature a number of presentations geared toward working in education, including professional ethics for educators, recommendations for making the most out of career fairs and tips on how teacher candidates can best convey their qualifications to potential employers.
“The seminar is designed cover topics most relevant to COE students who will enter school systems to work in classrooms and counseling offices, as they prepare to student teach or secure a career-starting position,” said Laurie Forstner, project coordinator in the COE for this event. “The presentations will cover practical dilemmas in ethics and standards that any educator might face and offers students a unique opportunity to hear from a panel of human resource officers about their districts’ working environments and recruiting procedures, as well as the current state and prospects in the field.”
Representatives from the following school districts are expected to attend: Atlanta Public Schools, Cobb County School District, City Schools of Decatur, DeKalb County School System, Fulton County Schools, Gwinnett County Public Schools and Henry County Schools.
Additionally, human resources representatives from some systems may remain about 30 minutes following the seminar to answer questions. Professional dress is recommended.
