Abstract

The Student Illinois Education Association held its spring conference on February 8th and 9th in Bloomington, Illinois. This conference is extremely beneficial for students that are entering the field of education. It was beneficial for the Student Education Association (SEA) Leaders at Governors State University, because it provided them with resources and tips that they brought back to the university and shared with others within the education field. This conference is a place for students in education to come together, share ideas, and learn new techniques. Going to the conference taught future teachers how to keep students’ attention and how to prepare for their first day of school. The conference also taught them how having a culturally diverse classroom is important, how to understand their future job contracts, and tips for their first year teaching. The SEA leaders were inspired by all of the speakers and workshops that they attended. This conference was such a great experience for the leaders to extend their knowledge on these topics, so they can do the same for others within the field of education.
