Members of the Future Teacher Club at Valley Stream North High School traveled to Molloy University on February 7 to explore their potential careers in the classroom. As part of the field trip, the students engaged in an array of activities showing them what life might look like as established educators for further generations of students.
Students interacted with the members of Molloy’s Education Club, and took part in lessons from Dr. Francine Wisnewski, director of the undergraduate education at Molloy, and associate professor Dr. Linda Kraemer.
Dr. Kraemer coached the students in an activity called Circles of Connection, which explored the significance of inclusion in the classroom. Dr. Wisnewski led students in an interactive activity looking at the various reasons people enter the education field and the impact they hope to have.
After the insightful discussions and activities, the North students underwent an extensive campus tour, looking at the various student opportunities available at Molloy. These future teachers enjoyed their experience at the university, and look forward to utilizing the new skills in their upcoming observational opportunities this spring.
