Keep a blog/ Education Association of Barry U.

Blogging is a great way to share and express life experiences and to keep track electronically of events and experiences one has. I am a board member of the Education Association of Barry University's, Miami Shores Chapter. We had a very successful semester Spring 2010 of hosting meetings for Education majors by bringing in ex-students of Barry U who are now teaching in the field. We also organized many fundraisers to help newly arrived Haitian children, and feeding the needy in Miami. We began a Buddy program with a local school to encourage the writing skills of a 4th grader class. Their teacher was a ex-student of Barry University. The students became buddy pals of many of our members as this program fostered writing skills, communication, and an opportunity for pre-service teachers to understand the interest of students they may be responsible for teaching in the future.
