On Sunday, November 12th FROM 1:30 – 4:30 pm, we will have our BIGGEST Professional Development event of the semester.  On Sunday, we have MOCK INTERVIEW PREP NIGHT!  This is an awesome opportunity to get interview practice and feedback in a relaxed setting.  You can use this time to get interviewed, and then ask follow up questions on how you did throughout the interview.  This is a great opportunity to learn your strengths and weaknesses related to interviewing.  THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO SOPHOMORES, JUNIORS AND SENIORS!! It is never too early to start your interview preparations!  Bring yourself and your resume!

You can sign up for 15 minute interviews in 252 Erickson here!

Following Mock Interview Prep we will have a general membership meeting! Come earn your points! 



Congratulations to our September Member of the Month, Melissa Gutwein!


Major: Special Education (Math, UECP, TESOL)

Melissa’s favorite KDP events are, “any professional development event that brings in College of Education alumni- they have great insights to share and understand how it feels to be in our position as undergraduates.”

When asked what she has gained from KDP, Melissa said, “as a member of KDP, I have the chance to learn from awesome professional development events, to be an active part of my community, and to meet inspiring future educators!”

April Member of the Month

Our April 2017 Member of the Month is Alysia Little!

Alysia is a Senior at MSU studying Elementary Education. Her favorite KDP event was walking in the Homecoming Parade to represent future teachers and KDP.

When asked what she has gained from being a member of KDP, Alysia said, “The two biggest things that I have gained from being a part of KDP is the fundamental things about teaching that is not taught within our TE courses and the friendships that I have built.  Teaching is such a collaborative career so having these friendships and people to bounce ideas off of it just awesome. I will really miss KDP and everything that it offers when I graduate next month!”.

Thank you for all that you do, Alysia, and congratulations on graduating!
