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.

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.”
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.

We are excited to have you join us for Spring 2022 semester! As you prepare for the semester ahead, we wanted to reach out to share a few Lurie College-specific updates:
All Lurie College courses will be online through Feb. 13, 2022. Course instructors will reach out to registered students directly with more information about synchronous and asynchronous class meeting plans.
Field experiences for Lurie College students will continue in the modality determined by our school and community partners. We anticipate that most schools, clinics, and community-based programs remain open for in-person work and learning. As long as our field partners continue to operate in person, we expect our students to be physically present in their field placements.
Our Lurie College Student Success Center, department offices, and student support services continue to be open for both in person and virtual access. Please check the relevant page(s) on our college website for hours, location, and contact information.
Study space and computer equipment are available. If you need a quiet space to study and/or need access to wifi for online classes, you are welcome to use the study spaces on campus, including our student success center in Sweeney Hall 106 and study and collaboration room in Sweeney Hall 446. If you need computer equipment or technical assistance to be able to access courses online, please contact our student success center.
We will return to the planned Spring 2022 schedule beginning on Feb. 14. Please make plans to be available for on-campus class meetings by arranging your work schedule, securing housing in the region, obtaining your parking pass or public transit pass, getting your ID card (required to access buildings on campus), getting your booster vaccine, etc. For classes that are listed as hybrid, please refer to the course syllabi in Canvas for more information on specific on-campus meeting dates. You can also obtain this information from department administrative assistants and/or advisors in the student success center. We are also planning to host a Cocoa and Coffee in the Courtyard event around this time, so stay tuned for more details.
Finally, we know that these changes to the start of the semester has added a layer of unpredictability to an already stressful time. Our faculty, staff, and college leaders are here to support you. Please prioritize your health and well being and contact our student success center team if you need help.
