Redefining the Classroom

Teachers learn a lot . . . from teachers

Posted: December 3rd, 2013

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING – A panel of working teacher-alums and teacher interns with Lake Superior State University's teacher education program swap humorous and practical anecdotes during a recent "Teacher Talk" symposium sponsored by the LSSU chapter of Kappa Delta Pi. Students queried the group for real-world advice, ranging from how to teach the sciences, to what wardrobe sets the best professional air in a classroom. The panelists worked in elementary through high school, from Sault Ste. Marie, Curtis, and Engadine, Mich. Kappa Delta Pi, an international professional society, holds evenings like these to give teacher education students who haven't had classroom experience a taste for real issues and perspectives. In the center, from left to right, are Molly Huber, a 2013 LSSU teacher education grad currently teaching at Three Lakes Academy in Curtis; Kelsey Cash, a 2013 grad and second-grade teacher with Engadine Elementary; and LSSU teacher interns Megan Freds and Katrina Cymbalist, both specializing in secondary education math and science.
