Join us as we speak with recent Trinity alumni who followed different pathways to teaching on Tuesday October 23rd, 2012 from 7-8pm in Seabury S205. Guests will appear in person and via web video conference to share their individual stories on how and why they became classroom teachers. Their personal advice expands upon the Pathways to Teaching web pages hosted by the Educational Studies Program. Scheduled to participate are Lis Pennington ’07, Katie (Brewer) Goodman ’07, Jackie Kahan ’08, Jesse Wanzer ’08, Courteney Coyne ’10, Samantha Alcala ’11, Begaeta Nukic ’11, Ashley Ardinger ’12, Candace Simpson ’12, Lenny Rutigliano ’14 (on his current experience with the St. Joseph consortial program), and others.
