SEA - 2014 Literacy Night

SEA is a branch of the National Education Association SEA is an association geared for future teachers that are dedicated to providing student teacher's with professional development activities as well as developing leadership skills essential for the classroom. SEA welcomes ALL Education majors including Counseling, Special Education, Secondary Education, and Elementary Education.  Non Education majors who are interested in educational issues may also join.

In addition to community outreach events, SEA - Outreach to TeachSEA offers professional development opportunities such as a Principals' Panel, Fall Conference, and Spring Conference.

I am pleased to say that the SEA is underway for the Fall 2014 semester.  We hope that your semester is starting with a smooth transtion into new classes and a step closer to becoming an educator.  We would love to meet you and have you join an amazing organization that builds strong leadership skills with opportunities for quality professional development.
