Mission

Dear Student,

On behalf of the University of Houston-Victoria Education Student Association, we would like to welcome you. Over the next several weeks, we will be stopping by several classes and passing out information concerning our organization and membership, and to answer any questions you may have about the organization. Whether you are enrolled in Block 1, 2, 3, or Student Teaching and regardless of what level you want to teach, we welcome you to join in on the fun and experience of belonging to a professional student organization.

The purpose of our organization is to unite students with each other in fun and meaningful experiences, as well as further the education programs at University of Houston-Victoria. The conditions of membership are as follows: you must be currently enrolled in the Teacher Education Program at UHV or will attend UHV in the near future, fill out a membership application, and show proof of a student membership in a professional educators association. We have provided you with a list of the larger teacher organizations, but encourage you to do your own research and decide which one you feel would benefit you the most. We believe that these memberships can prove to be invaluable to you as a student and as a professional.

Our goal is to provide a support system for each other and encourage each other through the process of becoming teachers. Our long-term goals include creating an “alumni” or first and second year mentoring program; various types of assistance in completing the classroom observations for the various certification classes; “Book Fairs”; guidelines that will assist you in navigating your way through the certification process at UHV; and other activities that will supply the priceless, invaluable support we can provide each other. We invite you to join our team.

At the present time, we are having a membership drive. The only way our goals can be achieved is through your participation and involvement. Again, welcome to the exciting world of education, and we look forward to having you at our meetings!

Sincerely,

University of Houston-Victoria, Education Student Association Steering Committee
