Education Career Summit 2018

The Education Department of Covenant College is pleased to announce Career Summit on Thursday and Friday, March 1-2, 2018.

 

What You Need to Know About Career Summit

On Thursday at 3:00 pm, school administrators will have an opportunity to make ten-minute presentations to all of our 2018 teacher candidates. Following these presentations will be a dinner for administrators and the faculty of the Education Department. After dinner there will be more school presentations, followed by teacher candidates signing up for individual interviews which will occur on Friday.

 

Administrators will also be given an opportunity to indicate which candidates they prefer to interview. We will do our best to honor preferences on both sides as well as to ensure that each candidate has at least 5-6 interviews.

 

Friday of Career Summit is devoted to interviews per the following schedule:

  • By 8:00 am—interview schedule will be emailed to teacher candidates and administrators
  • 8:30-9:50—individual interviews, 20 minutes in length
  • 9:50—break with refreshments
  • 10:10-noon—individual interviews, 20 minutes in length
  • 12:00-1:00—lunch for all administrators, teacher candidates, education faculty
  • 1:00-2:20—individual interviews, 20 minutes in length
  • 2:30-4:00—optional time for additional interviews as needed

Reformed Christian College

Dr. Jim Drexler describes Covenant’s undergraduate education program, defined by its philosophy of training Christian teachers who demonstrate Christ’s preeminence in all things.

"I love being an elementary education major and having the close-knit community of elementary education majors. Covenant’s education department excels at providing opportunities for students to be in the classrooms throughout the entire degree program, even as early on as first semester of your freshman year in Intro to Teaching. I have really enjoyed spending time down at a school in Chattanooga this semester to give me hands-on experience to relate to what I am learning in my coursework."
 - education major Grace Ann Arnold '18

Schuyler Moore

"I love that I am able to work with kids and that I am in a program that allows me to go off the Mountain and begin to see what it looks like to apply what I’m learning in a classroom. The professors in elementary education are also super phenomenal. They are excited to teach us how to become better teachers and inspire us to be great teachers."
 - Schuyler Moore '18

The country with the largest Muslim population in the world is home to Covenant alumni who are passionate about Christian education.
Dr. Drexler explains the path to obtain teacher certification in any of 15 subject areas via the Master of Arts in Teaching program at Covenant.
