There are many different clubs and organizations on the SUNY Potsdam campus; one of which is the Teacher Education Student Association (TESA).
This organization is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about teaching, and would like to receive professional development for their time, as well as interact with other education majors. Meetings are held bi-weekly and last for about one hour, starting at 7:30pm. The meetings consist of doing different activities to give back to the community, or having a speaker come in to discuss different topics related to teaching/schools where you receive professional development for the time.
In addition to the bi-weekly meetings, TESA also hosts a professional development conference right here at SUNY Potsdam. This conference consists of two days where alumni from all over come, some of which are retired teachers or administration, others who are currently teaching or in administration, provide valuable information for when you go into the real world of education.
Their next meeting is held Monday, February 9th at 7:30pm. This meeting is an ice cream social where everyone will be making Valentine’s Day cards for the local Meals on Wheels, while enjoying some yummy ice cream!
Below is the link for TESA’s Facebook page for TESA where you can find more information about what has been done at past meetings, as well as notifying you of upcoming events.
This organization is a great opportunity for all, and I encourage you to attend the meetings to see everything that they have to offer!
