STEA Year in Review
May 23, 2003 - STEA had a busy, productive year at Union University in 2002-03. Highlights of some of their activities include: conducting a voter registration campaign in October, participating in American Education Week in November, hosting Bulldog Daycamp during Homecoming and participating in Read Across America in February, sponsoring a new FTA chapter at North Side H.S., preparing gifts for local first-year teachers as a part of Teacher Appreciation Week, and hosting a variety of events on and off campus for education students. In addition, 12 students participated in TEA Professional development Workshops in Nashville; Shae Carlisle, the local president, was elected as a delegate to the TEA Representative Assembly; and at the spring STEA conference, Union’s chapter won first place as the most Outstanding Student TEA Chapter. Plans are already underway for next year, as the chapter has received a $1500 NEA grant for Project Connect: Connecting High School and College Students with the World of Teaching, a collaborative effort with two other local universities to mentor three local FTA chapters.
