Nadia Khedairy, advisor, and Dr. Elaine Zweig, professor of child development and education, teamed up to create a brand new kind of Education Fair. They also answered a few of our most pressing questions.
Tell me about the Education Fair
Collin College’s Education Fair is designed for those who want to impact the world one student at a time—prospective teachers. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, community members, university personnel, prospective employers, student organization members, career service personnel, advising staff and other members of the Collin College team.
When/Where is it?
The fair for prospective teachers is slated for 8:30 a.m. check in, 9 a.m.- 12:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Spring Creek Campus Living Legends Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.
Who should attend an Education Fair and Why?
The fair is designed to inform currently enrolled high school students, college students, post-graduate students and prospective education major students about the logistics of the education program, teacher certification options, short and long-term career planning, college transfer opportunities, academic planning and the merits of joining a national education student organization.
The fair offers attendees the opportunity to experience a step-by-step approach with a variety of break out sessions including academic advising, career coaching, Collin College’s university partners and Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education.
Is there a fee?
It is free and open to the public.
What is FINE?
The college’s Education Fair is an offshoot of the college’s new Find Investigate Navigate and Educate (FINE) initiative. Look for more FINE events in the future.
