Caldwell College students studying education received some valuable advice from the president of the largest teacher's union in the state.
New Jersey Education Association President Wendell Steinhauer visited Caldwell College on Nov. 18 to speak with students. Steinhauer shared his experience as a teacher and gave students professional advice on: how to stand out in an interview, the importance of being qualified in many areas and having multiple certifications, the value of understanding the community one is working in, and the positives of being involved and taking leadership roles.
“This event was a wonderful opportunity for our students to hear about the professional standards of the NJEA members and their passion for their profession. Wendell Steinhauer shared his love and commitment for the teachers and students of New Jersey,” said Joan H. Moriarty Ed.D., interim associate dean of Caldwell College’s education division.
The event was sponsored by the Caldwell College Education Association, the student club.
