On April 7, two School of Education organizations, Kappa Delta Pi and ASCD, hosted a teacher panel made up of eight first-year teachers who graduated last year. The panel described rewards and challenges in the first year of teaching, advice for aspiring teachers, and funny moments from the classroom. They also discussed how their professional practice forwards Saint Mary’s traditions of excellence in education, leadership, and our shared Lasallian heritage of relationship and community in the classroom. Members of the panel included Sr. Marie Faustina, Abbey Killian, Katie Homan, Aleaha Zabel, Austin O’Hare, Alex Zuzek, Zach Slowiak, and John Morales. About 40 School of Education students and six School of Education faculty attended the event.
