ESU wants to hear from you! Please take the 20-minute, online, confidential Tomorrow’s Teachers Speak Upsurvey this week! We are participating in this national research project being led by Project Tomorrow and look forward to what you have to say about what you are leaning and what you are expecting from your future teaching career.

Each year, more principals say they are looking for new teachers to start with a particular set of technology skills. Project Tomorrow wants to know how the next generation of teachers is preparing for that challenge and what YOU are expecting when it comes to technology in your future classroom. (Here’s what last year’s first year teachers told Speak Up: http://bit.ly/1stYearTs )​

The national data findings will be used to inform national policies on technology use in education, teacher preparation programs and K-12 school and district leaders on the aspirations of tomorrow’s teachers. And, we want to use your feedback to inform the work we are doing on campus.

 

Please Speak Up today! Get started at this linkhttp://www.speakup4schools.org/TomorrowsTeachers/

​We have received complaints about temperatures inside buildings rising to the 75- to 80-degree range.

Our normal policy has been to turn on air conditioning in buildings after three straight days of 85 degrees or higher is forecast. Although we have not yet reached that point, we are working to prepare all the AC units on campus and should have the entire campus up and running by next week.

Please realize that commercial heating and cooling units are unlike what you might be used to at home. Residential units often can be switched back and forth from day to day, helpful during spring in Kansas where days with high temperatures in the upper 70s can be followed by days with highs only in the 50s and lows below freezing.​

There is a good possibility that some cooler days are still in store for us and we will not be able to turn heat back on. If cooler weather comes, the academic buildings may seem colder than people would like. But we know it's easy to put on an extra layer to stay warm.

I’m excited to share with you a new partnership between Emporia State University and the ESU Foundation that will bring added responsibilities for Tyler Curtis, executive director of Alumni Relations for the university.

As assistant vice president for university advancement and foundation assistant vice president for outreach and engagement, Tyler will maintain responsibilities with Alumni Relations with an added focus on the new Corporate Engagement Strategic Plan he developed with June Coleman, director of ESU Career Services.​

Tyler’s new role, which begins April 23, is part of a reorganization effort by the Foundation and University Advancement to deliver services to be even more effective.

We are excited about the new Corporate Engagement Strategic Plan because it puts Emporia State University in position for stronger partnerships with major employers in the state and region. It allows for both our institution and our business partners to focus on outcomes. Our mutually beneficial goal is to have highly educated individuals join the workforce to move our state forward.

It’s that time of the semester again! You’ve passed midterms and can see the end of the semester approaching, yet now you have to jump the hurdles of all these research papers. You’ve received your assignment instructions for your final project, and now you don’t know where to start. Not to fear, your librarians are here! Starting April 15th, the University Libraries & Archives will be hosting an online Graduate Research Workshop. This workshop is available through Canvas so once you have been enrolled you can work at your own pace and access it throughout the rest of your time at Emporia State University.   

What You Will Learn: There are three different modules you can access in any order you’d like. The first module you will start brainstorming topics. The second module you will learn to use library resources and how to use advanced searching. The final module, you will learn how to evaluate resources to construct a literature review.

Time Frame: Each module should take about an hour to complete, so you are looking at a 6-hour commitment. However, you can either do the modules all in one day, over the weekend or at your own pace.

What’s So Special About This Workshop: This online workshop allows for you to use your own research topic (or just a practice topic) and gather feedback from a librarian about your research process. We will give you tips for your search techniques, offer citation help and suggestions, and walk you through formatting your APA paper (or MLA by request).

How to get Enrolled: To get enrolled in this free online workshop, contact Bethanie O’Dell at bodell1@emporia.edu or 620-341-5032.

Kansas high school students interested in exploring careers that either are in education or begin with degrees in education have an extra few weeks to apply for the Kansas Future Teacher Academy.

The deadline for receiving applications has now been extended from April 10 to April 24.

“I challenge each high school counselor to find and encourage at least two people from their student body to apply to the academy,” said Dr. Roger Caswell, director of the academy. “Many people – students and parents – think the students have to know they want to be a teacher to attend the academy. That’s not necessarily the case. This is a chance for high school students to see what possibilities there are in a variety of fields in, and relating to, education. And, it’s five days for them to explore careers, instead of spending their time – and tuition dollars – once they get into college.”

Applications are available online from www.emporia.edu/teach/kfta/ and will be accepted through April 24. High school counselors, educators or students with questions about the academy, or those who would like more information can call ESU’s Jones Institute for Educational Excellence at 1-877-378-5433.

Every year the state’s nationally renowned Teachers College at Emporia hosts 25-60 high school students for five days. During the academy, participants learn about opportunities for careers in education, problem-solving and leadership skills, personal goal setting, and the use of technology in education.

This year the KFTA will be held June 11-15, 2017 at Emporia State University.  ​

ATTENTION FUTURE TEACHERS:

Tomorrow’s Teachers Speak Up is a unique opportunity for America’s next generation of teachers to “speak up” about how they want to use technology in their future K-12 classrooms. Each year, more principals tell us they are looking for new teachers to start with a particular set of technology skills. Project Tomorrow wants to know how the next generation of teachers is preparing for that challenge, and what this incoming cohort is expecting when it comes to technology in their new classrooms.
The national data findings will be used to inform national policies on technology use in education, teacher preparation programs and K-12 school and district leaders on the aspirations of tomorrow’s teachers. 
Participation is open to all students in teacher preparation programs both at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as career changers in special programs, regardless of prior student teaching experience.
Online surveys are open for input until May 1, 2017. Students can click here to take the 20-minute survey!
For more information, please visit: http://www.tomorrow.org/tomorrowsteachers/index.html

Dear Hornet Nation,

It is hard to find the words to express how grateful I am to you for your support of the Now & Forever Campaign. As a Hornet, I have experienced firsthand the pride and sense of family that Emporia State University fosters.  These feelings have multiplied as we have witnessed donor after donor engaging to make a difference in the lives of our students. This campaign provided the opportunity to give back to a place that has meant so much to so many.

 

The stage has been set for alumni across the world to reconnect and build relationships with Emporia State. Now & Forever: The Campaign for Emporia State University has been a rallying call to more than 13,000 donors who have put their passion into action as they help support the next generation of Hornets.

 

The impact of Now & Forever has been tremendous. Together as Hornet Nation, we raised more than $58 million in cash, pledges, and legacy gifts— the largest philanthropic movement in Emporia State’s 154-year history.

 

This movement is a direct reflection of the generosity of our donors. It is a reflection of the inspiring work of our faculty and students. It is a reflection of the pride we all have in Emporia State University. It is a reflection of our alumni who are dedicated to maintain a stronger Hornet Nation.

 

Thank you, Hornet Nation, for investing in Emporia State University.

We are, as the Now & Forever Campaign so eloquently reminded us, Silent No More!

 

Yours for Hornet Nation,​

Topeka – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Governor Sam Brownback ordered flags in Kansas to be flown at half-staff from sun-up until sun-down beginning immediately and lasting through sun-down Thursday, March 16 to honor former Kansas Lt. Governor John W. Crutcher, who passed away March 13, 2017.
 
Crutcher, 100, was elected Lieutenant Governor in 1964. Born in Ensign, Kansas in December of 1916, Crutcher grew to live a life of service. He was a graduate of Hutchinson Community College and the University of Kansas. Crutcher worked as a teacher in a one-room school house, Navy officer during World War II, Kansas State Senator, Kansas Lt. Governor, and filled several federal appointments including Director of the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation in the Department of the Interior, and as Commissioner of Postal Rates.
 
“John Crutcher was committed to public service locally, statewide, and nationally,” said Lt. Governor Dr. Jeff Colyer. “As a Kansan and as Lt. Governor, I extend my thanks for his service. Ruth and I send our heartfelt condolences to his wife Edith, his family, and his friends. I trust they take solace in remembering his life well lived.”
 
A memorial service is set for Thursday, March 16.​​

This week the National Weather Service reminds Kansans of the risk of summertime severe weather.  Kansas experiences a wide variety of summertime severe weather, including: tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail, and flash flooding.  Residents are encouraged to use this week to review their severe weather safety plans and practice what you would do if severe weather occurred in your area.​

Thursday- Thunderstorms and Lightning Safety

Did you know the channel of air through which lightning passes can be heated to 50,000°F- hotter than the surface of the sun!  The rapid heating and cooling of the air near the lightning channel causes a shock wave that results in the sound we know as “thunder”.

 

The vast majority of lightning victims were going to a safe place but waited too long before seeking safe shelter.

 

WHEN THUNDER ROARS, GO INDOORS!

ATTENTION FUTURE TEACHERS:

Tomorrow’s Teachers Speak Up is a unique opportunity for America’s next generation of teachers to “speak up” about how they want to use technology in their future K-12 classrooms. Each year, more principals tell us they are looking for new teachers to start with a particular set of technology skills. Project Tomorrow wants to know how the next generation of teachers is preparing for that challenge, and what this incoming cohort is expecting when it comes to technology in their new classrooms.

The national data findings will be used to inform national policies on technology use in education, teacher preparation programs and K-12 school and district leaders on the aspirations of tomorrow’s teachers. 

Participation is open to all students in teacher preparation programs both at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as career changers in special programs, regardless of prior student teaching experience.

Online surveys are open for input until May 1, 2017. Students can click here to take the 20-minute survey!

This week the National Weather Service reminds Kansans of the risk of summertime severe weather.  Kansas experiences a wide variety of summertime severe weather, including: tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail, and flash flooding.  Residents are encouraged to use this week to review their severe weather safety plans and practice what you would do if severe weather occurred in your area.

Tuesday- Tornado Safety

Did you practice your tornado sheltering plans during the Kansas Statewide Tornado Drill today?  If not, that’s okay.  You can practice anytime.  The safest place to be is in an underground shelter, basement, or safe room.  If no underground shelter is available, a small, windowless interior room or hallway on the lowest level of a sturdy building is the safest alternative.

 

What is the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning issued by the National Weather Service?

Tornado Watch- Be Prepared!

·         Tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area.  Review and discuss your emergency plans and be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching.  Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center for counties where tornadoes may occur.  The watch area is typically large, covering numerous counties.

Tornado Warning- Take Action!

·         A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar.  There is imminent danger to life and property.  Move to an interior room on the lowest level of a sturdy building and avoid windows.  Warnings are issued by the local National Weather Service office and typically include a much smaller area such as a city or county.
