On Thursday, March 28, eight BFA and EdM alumni returned to campus to mentor the 2013 EdM Candidates.
The evening began with the candidates co-presenting an advocacy Prezi defending why dance should be included in the K-12 curriculum. The alumni, posing as K-12 parents and school administration, responded by launching a series of challenging questions. Following this, alumni shared their job hunting and interview strategies as well as first-year teaching tips. Alumni then partnered up with the candidates to serve as mentors for candidate vitas, resumes and draft websites as they prepare for their EdM Portfolio Celebration on May 16.
