#IBelongAtLurieCollege | Charline Tenorio

What provides you with a sense of belonging at Lurie College?  Is it your drive to become a transformative educator, counselor, therapist, school or community leader?  A faculty member, advisor, your friends or student groups?  The opportunities, events, and culture?  Share with us on Instagram by tagging @sjsulurie and using the hashtag #IBelongAtLurieCollege in your caption or email us at brian.cheungdooley@sjsu.edu so we can share uplifting stories from our community.  Learn about Charline Tenorio, Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences alumni and graduate student, and what provides her with a sense of belonging!

“The overall environment of interdisciplinary collaboration and upward mobility of supporting each other is what really provides me with a sense of belonging here at Lurie College.  I had entered the college as a shy freshman and really got the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone by interacting with my peers.  Everyone in the college definitely upholds the idea of supporting one another in good times and bad; academically, professionally, and socially.  There is definitely something at the college for you, whether it be in student-run organizations with peers, project-based learning with faculty, or opportunities beyond the classroom with administrators.”

Crowdsourced Resources for Educators

SJSU Lurie College of Education Communicative Disorders and Sciences Clinic

The SJSU Lurie College of Education faculty members have been crowdsourcing and sharing resources with one another as we’ve transitioned into a remote, virtual teaching and learning environment.  We would like to share these resources with Lurie College of Education students, alumni, and partners who may find them useful in their work.  The list below is in no particular order and are not necessarily endorsed by the Lurie College of Education.

Participate in the Lurie College 10-2-1 Challenge

We’re building community at the SJSU Lurie College of Education while sheltering-in-place. Challenge a friend, classmate, professors, advisors, or colleague to answer 10 questions in 2 minutes using 1 take. You choose the questions (nothing designed to embarrass please). If you record a video of the responses and share it on social media, tag us @sjsulurie and then pass on the challenge. If you’ve already been interviewed, it’s your turn to interview someone else.  Watch Briettny Curtner, graduate student in the Department of Counselor Education, interview Dean Heather Lattimer, and then Dean Heather Lattimer interview Associate Dean Marcos Pizarro in the videos below.

Early Childcare Providers are on the Front Lines of the Coronavirus Pandemic

Please call your federally-elected official to ask for their support in providing emergency funding to maintain high-quality child care.

SJSU Associated Students Child Development Center

In order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), schools have closed down across the region and the country, sending children of all ages home for extended periods of time.

Working parents are therefore facing unprecedented challenges in determining how to balance child care and work responsibilities. Those who are able to work from home must meet the needs of their children while remotely addressing responsibilities under rapidly evolving work conditions. Moreover, with the increased risks of exposure to coronavirus among older adults, grandparents may not be able to safely fill in as back-up caregivers.

With the economy reeling from the coronavirus crisis and the complications and consequences of hitting pause on the work of small and large businesses, schools, and other public entities, many employers and working parents will struggle to find a way through. While employers may allow some flexibility, it is clear that both working parents and the caregivers who support their children are critical to keeping the economy going.

Meanwhile, some parents simply must continue to work on site, including first responders (firefighters, police, nurses, etc.) and those deemed to be in essential roles. Importantly, the Santa Clara County Health Officer’s Shelter in Place Order recognizes childcare providers within this essential workforce, as their services enable other exempted employees to continue working.

As employers and employees throughout the region scramble to adjust to the shelter in place order and to flatten the curve, child care workers are being asked to serve on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic. This crisis highlights the importance of ECE providers to society and economic stability – not just now, but always. Meanwhile, these providers are themselves frequently living on the edge of economic security given persistent low wages. As a society, we need to recognize the importance of ECE providers. In light of this and other emergencies and natural disasters, resources should be provided directly to childcare providers, recognizing the role that they play in maintaining safe environments for children and facilitating adults’ continued involvement in the workforce. Furthermore, in order to maintain this workforce, they must be paid a worthy wage that not only keeps them out of poverty, but one that adequately compensates them for the role they play in society.

Written by the Early Childhood Institute (ECI) at San José State University, which is led by Dr. Andrea Golloher, Dr. Emily Slusser, and Dr. Maria Fusaro.  Recognizing the potential each and every child brings into the world, ECI promotes equitable and inclusive access to high-quality early learning experiences by collaborating with campus and community partners; advancing applied research; building the capacity of early childhood professionals; and advocating for professionals, young children, and their families.

Video Message from Dean Lattimer | March 18, 2020

Watch this video for a message from Dean Heather Lattimer following the announcement from SJSU that the Spring 2020 Commencement ceremonies have been postponed in response to COVID-19. Those who are eligible to complete their academic programs, apply for graduation (undergraduate) or candidacy (graduate), and fulfill all of their academic requirements will still graduate as planned. If you are experiencing a financial hardship during this time, please visit http://sjsu.edu/education/financial-aid to apply for a Lurie College of Education Hardship Grant.

“I think it’s important that everyone knows that there’s people who grow up a lot differently than you do and have different values than you do, so it’s important to educate yourself about those kinds of values and be an open ear and an ally to people who may not look like you.”
