The College of Education and Human Performance cordially invites you to join us at our annual HAPPY (Having Active Participation Prepares You) Hour Student Showcase. Beat the rush and qualify for door prizes by registering online NOW for this terrific professional development opportunity!

HAPPY Hour at the Movies featuring the inspirational teacher movie Freedom Writers from 4:30-7:00 p.m. in the Morgridge International Reading Center on Friday, January 24, 2014 will kick off this educational and fun-filled conference!

The excitement continues on Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on the main campus of UCF where our teacher candidates – who will be the presenters – are the STARS!! Learn strategies, activities, and information that can be applied to a myriad of careers. The Showcase boasts keynote speaker, 2013 Florida Teacher of the Year Alexandre Lopes, who teaches children 3-5 years old in an inclusive setting at Carol City Elementary School in the Miami-Dade Public Schools. Always seeking to make learning fun, he regularly uses singing and dancing to reach all of his students. Also enjoy the Panel of our Rising Stars (education alumni who are now beginning teachers), mock interviews with real-live administrators, numerous vendors, professional organizations, the Prize Patrol, pizza from Giovanni’s, and the Yum Yum cupcake food truck!
