Event Overview

In its 8th year, The Teachers’ Forum offers new teachers the opportunity to gain critical skills and resources and network with principals and professionals in education.  Specifically, this event provides our students and early alumni with opportunities to gain insight through a keynote address, participate in roundtable discussions on various topics led by educators, receive guidance on resumes, and network with all educators and DePaul College of Education alumni.  There is also an opportunity for current student teachers and early COE alumni to participate in mock interviews with principals and assistant principals (limited space).  Over 35 current and former principals, seasoned educators, and College of Education faculty representing urban and suburban schools will be participating in this event as mock interviewers and facilitators of round table discussions.  Round Table discussions will focus on topics ranging from classroom management, communication with parents, building strong relationships with administration, etc.
