Secondary education majors Avigal Kaminsky ’18, Carolann Ortiz ’18, and Alexandra Rinaldi ’18, along with Associate Professor of Education Dr. Jodi Bornstein, presented at the Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education Conference at Drexel University on March 17.

Their session, “Coming Full Circle: Teacher education candidates intentionally building community in the University classroom,” focused on the importance of purposeful instructional planning to build community in college classrooms and the impact this work has on the teaching practices of new educators.

The team also presented at the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Teacher Educators (PAC-TE) Annual Conference last fall.

They will present on the topic again at the upcoming National Student Teaching and Supervision conference at West Chester University on May 5.
