Welcome from the President


Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524

Message from the President

By Dr. Roberta Levitt

President 2011-2012

Welcome to Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524!

February 2012

Dear Kappans and Friends:

I would like to start by thanking the Executive Board Members of PDK Chapter 1524 for all their hard work. Over the past six months, the Chapter has provided five educational programs and professional development opportunities. Continuing the trend of the previous year, attendance of these events has been exceptional.

As always, our free programs are open to students, educators, administrators, and those interested in public education. You need not be a member of PDK to attend events. However, by joining our association, you additionally gain exclusive access to a wealth of professional development opportunities and essential resources that are sure to enhance and add value to your experience in the field. Membership is now open to undergraduate students who have completed their sophomore year.

With the beginning of a new year and the spring semester upon us, I am excited about the inspiring initiatives and thought-provoking programs that are scheduled for the remainder of this year. We encourage you to join us at these upcoming events especially tailored to benefit education professionals like you.

Last May, we celebrated 25 years of fostering leadership, research, and service in education. At our upcoming Annual Induction and Award Ceremony, we will honor three outstanding individuals, dedicated to the advancement of education, who demonstrate the guiding principles of the Phi Delta Kappa mission. In addition to the Distinguished Researcher and Lifetime Service and Leadership Awards, the Student Teacher of the Year Award will continue to be granted to two students who exemplify excellence in student teaching.

After the success of the fall Saturday technology workshop in late October, we hope that you will again join us on March 3rd, for our second Saturday workshop on SMART Board Technology and Integrated Program Tools.

With the assistance of the Executive Board and support of involved members, I believe that PDK Chapter 1524 will continue to address unique professional development and educational issues.

Please join us as we continue on this journey of creating a strong and enriching educational community.
