On March 30, 2019, the Psi Omicron Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education, hosted a “High Tea” to recognize our School of Education alumni from 2008 to 2018.  Alumni and current KDP members enjoyed light tea sandwiches and pastries as they networked.

School of Education Alumni (Class of 2018): Iyana Hunter, Kelsey Kinnear, Sally Dawson, Becca Jenkins, and Megan Madigan

To begin the event, participants got to know one another by playing people bingo. After a few attendees won teacher-related gift baskets, they joined together at their tables to commemorate on what were their biggest take-aways from the Stevenson University Education program. While guests were enjoying delectable dishes, they helped current KDP officers analyze what it means to be a culturally responsive teacher. In small groups, guests were asked to create a list of questions that they have in regards to developing themselves as an educator. To close the event, Dr. Clotile Galbraith spoke to the audience about the impact our alumni have on our School of Education and its students. De’Asia Winder, senior Vice President of Kappa Delta Pi, was the Lead Officer in the planning of this social event.

KDP will be hosting its first ever Regional Workshop on May 4th from 11am to 1pm in the Rockland Banquet Room. This event will center around the topic of being a “Culturally Responsive Teacher in the 21st Century.” The plan is to have alumni return as the presenters of round table discussions.
