Teacher preparation and military training have striking similarities and share the same goal: to develop leaders both in the classroom and in the military to execute the mission. Research and professional experience led to the identification of six shared lessons: trust your training, be a battle buddy, be a leader, nurture yourself, steel your battle mind, and grab your lifeline.
Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 24 from 11:45 am – 12:45 pm in the Miley Private Dining Room to discuss how these lessons play a key role in preparing and supporting an “all-volunteer” teaching and military force. The discussion will be led by Dr. Kathleen Vespia, Assistant Professor in the Education Dept and Dr. Tom Gibbons from the Naval War College.
Roundtable discussions are open to students, faculty and staff at Salve Regina University. The Pell Center will provide a free lunch. Space is limited. Please RSVP to [email protected].
