ATTEND A TALK WITH DEAN ZIONTS IN AUGUST

Thursday, August 19 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm CST
https://depaul.zoom.us/j/96312774487?from=addon
As we begin to return to campus, Dean Paul Zionts will be returning to his popular Zoom Update and Q&A sessions for COE students. The dean will be happy to address topics of interest to students such as fall quarter plans or student teaching updates. This opportunity to get information and ask questions is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. You can either ask your questions of the dean during the session or email them ahead of time to education@depaul.edu

IN-PERSON DAYS IN AUGUST

DePaul College of Education offices will be open for in-person services on Tuesdays during regular office hours (9am-5pm) throughout the month of August. If there is business that you wish to attend to face-to-face, staff in the Office of Advising, Office of Student Teaching and Field Experience, Academic Success Center, Dean’s Office and our college departments will be there to assist you. Please note that if there is someone specific that you wish to see, you should confirm that they will be in-office on that day and not on vacation. We will also continue to be available via email and Zoom on Tuesdays and all other weekdays during August. We will be sharing our fall return to campus schedule later on in the summer.

CPS TUTOR CORPS

One item that the results of our recent student survey pointed out was that the majority of College of Education students are working either part-time or full-time while taking classes at DePaul. While many of you may be happy in your current positions, many others are working simply to make ends meet in jobs that have nothing at all to do with education. Wouldn’t it be great to make GOOD money actually putting into practice the SKILLS you are learning in class? Well, now you have that chance with the CPS TUTOR CORPS.
Not only will you gain valuable experience working with 1-4 students at a time, you will also be paid between $20-$22 per hour (training included!) and be guaranteed 20-30 hours of paid work through each school semester.
We encourage our students to take advantage of this great opportunity to serve as literacy tutors (grades K-5) and math tutors (grades 6-12) in CPS schools on the South and West Sides of Chicago. We know that the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted these school communities so this effort aims to accelerate these students’ learning towards a more successful future and, in order for it to work, they need YOU!
To learn more about this first-of-its-kind, equity-based academic initiative and to submit an interest form, visit https://www.cps.edu/campaigns/tutor-corps 
Come serve in the Tutor Corps and help lift up Chicago’s next generation!
