Successful Fall 2010 Events
- The 7th annual Out of the Darkness Walk took place
here in Fredonia on October 2nd, 2010. TEC put together a team of 34 girls and
raised $435.00 almost reaching our goal of $500.00. The Out of the Darkness
Walk was a way to raise awareness for suicide and the funds were donated to the
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Though the weather was less than
cooperative, we walked around Fredonia proud of the service we were doing!
Overall Fredonia raised thousands of dollars, all thanks to the students and
faculty of SUNY Fredonia.
- Teacher Education Club is currently running a buddy
mentor program, in which an upperclassman is paired with a new student or a
freshman in the field of education to help with any problems or questions that
they may have about classes, professors, advisement, or any other topic where
they may need aid.
- Group members also have the opportunity for a
volunteer tutoring experience in a fourth grade classroom in Dunkirk.
Volunteers are currently helping students after school with homework help.
Volunteers are given their own student to work with throughout the semester.
- Our annual Dress for Success Fashion Show was a great
success this year! We had about twenty students who modeled what to wear to a
field experience or student teaching placement. These students all dressed
appropriately and strut their stuff on the runway. Professors and executive
board members dressed in what not to wear. They dressed very un-professionally
in short skirts, jerseys, suspenders and pajamas. Some professors offered their
students extra credit for attending the show, and the turn out was better than
we expected. Overall, everyone had a good time and the show was great.
Summary of 2009- 2010 Major Events:
- TEC held its annual "Dress for Success" fashion show in the multi-purpose room of
the Williams Center with lighting and sound provided by sound services. The fashion
show was sold out with over 220 people in attendance. More than 20 students volunteered
to model in the show.
- TEC sponsored a 3 day Scholastic book fair with record profit. Numerous general body
members volunteered to work a shift at the fair. With the credit that we accumulated
from Scholastic, TEC was able to donate a basket of books to be raffled at Rockin'
the Commons with proceeds going to Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
- In collaboration with the College of Education, TEC held the 2nd annual Research Symposium
on March 27. There were twelve proposals that were sent in and the event was attended
by 80 people. At this Research Symposium, many students presented class projects
- TEC held its 25th Annual Children's Fest. On this special day, TEC was joined by
George Brown, who created Children's Fest in 1986. Although TEC was in the rain location,
approximately 150 children from the surrounding communities attended.
- TEC worked closely with the Career Development Office to offer professional development
meetings in interview techniques and resumes. Students learned what types of questions
would be asked at an interview. They also learned how to assemble a resume for a
teaching position. To conclude this series, we held a mock interview session.
