Teacher Panel – November 2nd, 2020


The Student Education Association (SEA) and Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society (KDP) hosted a Teacher Panel on Monday, November 2nd via Zoom. Students at Governor State University (GSU) who are pre-service educators attended and asked questions.  The Teacher Panel covered topics regarding student teaching, first year teaching strategies, how to write resumes, tips on applying for jobs, educators as professionals, specialty areas in education, and how to prep for the edTPA.

The panel consisted of a range of teachers including several first year teachers through retired teachers: Samantha Allen, Janet Blackmon, Kinga Drag, Tanya Mathers, Jessica White, Dr. Damien Aherne, Keelin Crotty, Felicia Kunelis, Destiny Mangano, Willie Williams, Joseph Zampillo, Gregory Baker, Nassrine Hamdan, Alexandrea Horton, Monica King, Rob Lininger, and Joy Otry. Dr. Angela Thompson (edTPA Coordinator/ Professor at GSU) shared her knowledge and advice on how to prepare and succeed with edTPA.  The GSU students who attended left with an abundance of knowledge to help them prepare to be successful educators. 

The SEA would like to thank the panelist volunteers for their valuable time and knowledge.

This event was organized by SEA/KDP leaders and SEA/KDP advisor Dr. Lisa Pennington.
