The Coastal Carolina University Teaching Fellows enjoyed an event with Hot topics in Education, dinner, and bowling on February 19, 2017. The day started in the Kline Hospitality Suite on Coastal Carolina’s campus with dinner provided by one of the local teaching fellows family. This meal consisted of chicken and pulled pork sandwiches, pasta salad, coleslaw, and various flavors of pound cake for desert. After eating, the Teaching Fellows participated in a very informative presentation on Hot Topics in Education, given by the Dean of the Spadoni College of Education, Dr. Ed Jadallah. The fellows were very engaged in this presentation because they are seeing some of these issues first hand in their placements at Homewood Elementary in Conway, SC.
After the professional development, the group of Teaching Fellows all carpooled to Myrtle Beach Bowl for a fun evening of friendly competition and bonding in a relaxed environment. The fellows were split into groups of six to play against each other on the same lanes. Mentor and mentee pairs were encouraged to play with the same group so that they could develop their individual relationships as well as relationships throughout the entire cohort. The Coastal Carolina University Teaching Fellows really enjoyed being able to spend time together outside of a professional atmosphere and get to know different sides of each other. The fellows look forward to another wonderful event like this in the future!
