This is a fantastic annual Spring Professional Development Event for our Liberal Studies candidates to ask questions, gain feedback on resumes & interviewing and share passions for teaching with real administrators in our surrounding area.
Placer County STEM Expo
April 2011 marked the first Placer County Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Expo, instigated and hosted by our very own Dr. Eric Bull. This county-wide event was a huge success. 125 4th-12th grade students brought diverse STEM projects to be judged or displayed. Many stage events and classroom workshops educated and entertained families all day, helping to promote STEM and connect parents, students and community.
Race To Nowhere & Forum
Fall 2010 our department hosted a showing of Race to Nowhere, a film spurred from a mother's realization of the crippling academic pressure that students face and the broken way our schools are operating. The showing and forum was a huge success, with more than 60 attendees, many being local parents, public school teachers and administrators.

One informal way we communicate as a department is through our WJU Teacher Education page. Here you'll find some tips, FYI's, upcoming events, or maybe just a shout out that we have a pile of cookies in our office for you. With so many ins and outs to education, it's also an easy venue to ask questions as a student so that others can see the answer too!
