The School of Education Majors Club
The School of Education at Pfeiffer University established a School of Education Majors Club for teacher education students who seek licensure in all content areas offered at the University.Â The organization is a vehicle for upper level students to mentor freshmen and sophomores who have declared teacher education as their major. The clubÂ’s main focus is upon servant leadership and members seek to provide a way for education students to serve each other and the surrounding community as they prepare to become teachers.
A goal of the School of Education MajorÂ’s Club is for members to participate in service projects in local schools.Â During the 2006-2007 academic year, the organization is sponsoring a field day and history bowl for 4th grade students from local elementary schools.Â Â The field day events will take place on the Misenheimer Campus.Â
