Education Students’ Association
The St. Mary’s University Education Students’ Association (ESA) works in partnership with the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA) to bring students of the St. Mary’s University Bachelor of Education Program opportunities for professional development, social events, and support. We believe that having the opportunity for growth contributes to excellent teaching and our goal is to help promote the development of excellent teacher candidates at St. Mary’s University.
To have access to the opportunities provided by the St. Mary’s University Education Students’ Association, student members must pay an annual fee of $10 to the ESA and be registered with the ESA. Some professional development workshops and social events may have extra costs associated with them.
We believe that professional development opportunities help make students excellent teachers. For information about PD workshops that we are looking into, look out below.
Mental Health Workshop
Interested in learning how to help students who may be struggling with mental health issues?
We are too. We are hoping to run a workshop that promotes a realistic view of mental health and enables us, as teachers, to help struggling students as best we can.
Would you like tips and tricks to use on the job hunt?
Chat with students from previous years who have been working as teachers and learn what might benefit you when searching, and applying, for jobs.
