PDK To Offer a Job Searching Event for Teachers and School Administrators
February 9 meeting will take place in the Wang Center at Stony Brook University
STONY BROOK, NY (January 20, 2011)–The Stony Brook University Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa will host a meeting on February 9, 2011 to provide education professionals with the information they need to stand out in today’s highly competitive job market.
The event will open with a panel discussion lead by Dr. Carl Bonuso, retired Superintendent of the Wantagh School District, and Andrew Greene, Principal of Candlewood Middle School in Half Hollow Hills. Participants will also be able attend smaller meetings that are specific to either the teaching or administrative job search. While the primary focus of the event is the job search, other areas to be addressed will include the impact that professional development has on a candidate’s marketability.
“Given Governor Cuomo’s recent tax cap proposal, teachers and administrators are concerned,” says Marlene Brennan, Director of the Professional Education Resource Center at Stony Brook University’s School of Professional Development. “The response from last year's event was overwhelming because it addresses such a large audience: those new to the educational field, as well as those who have had the comfort of employment for quite some time and may just need to brush-up on the more modern job searching approaches.”
The event will be held on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 in Room 201 of the Wang Center at Stony Brook University. Admission is free to all Phi Delta Kappa members and non-members may attend for $10. Those who wish to join Phi Delta Kappa may do so at the event. Those interested in attending should RSVP to Marlene.Brennan@stonybrook.edu by February 2, 2011.
