Summer Teaching Opportunity for our Students

Recently SJSU was awarded a grant through APLU’s Urban Serving Universities to develop a supported CS pathway in partnership with Milpitas High School and San Jose City College.

This summer, the program will launch a four-week camp for high school students during which they are introduced to CS and earn college credit. The program will be taught by SJCC faculty and supported by Milpitas HS teachers. In addition, they are hiring some of our SJSU students as teaching assistants.   SJSU students will earn $21/per hour. The program will be offered 10am-2pm Monday to Thursday, 6/27-7/21.  Lunch is included.

Both undergraduate and grad students are eligible; students who are aspiring teachers are prioritized. No prior CS knowledge is needed. This is a great opportunity for future educators to gain classroom experience and gather foundational CS understanding in a fun and supportive environment!

Read About Our Healthy Development Clinic on KRON4

We are so excited for our new Healthy Development Clinic! Read more about then on KRON4. Here is a small bit from the article:

“The idea of bringing a clinic of this type to the east side was led by three SJSU professors and clinical researchers: Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Development Cara Maffini, Professor of Communicative Disorders and Sciences and speech-language pathologist Nidhi Mahendra, and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology and clinical psychologist Matthew Capriotti.

According to Maffini, families living on the East Side can’t access the needed resources due to barriers such as money, transportation, and time to visit providers who support “healthy development,” such as available mental health professionals, physicians, and dentists.”

Listen to Dean Heather Lattimer on KQED

Our very own Lurie College Dean, Heather Lattimer is on KQED to talk about Teaching Tough Subjects!! We are so proud!

“When I was growing up, my father and I engaged in vigorous debates around the dinner table, often taking polar opposite positions on local and national issues. Sometimes those discussions led me to re-think my beliefs. Other times they reaffirmed them. Always they pushed me to learn and grow. And they strengthened the love and respect that my father and I felt for one another.”

Enter to Dine with the Dean

SJSU Lurie College of Education undergraduate, graduate, credential, and doctoral students can enter your name for a chance to join Dean Heather Lattimer and a group of students for great conversation and a complimentary meal each semester during the academic year!

Attendees will be selected at random – none of your responses in the RSVP form will affect whether or not you’re selected, but they will help Dean Lattimer learn a little bit about you before the meal if you are selected.

Those who are selected to dine with the dean will receive an email notification approximately 1 week before each meal if once they’ve been randomly selected. Those who aren’t selected for a meal are still eligible to be selected for a future meal.
