2019 Job Search Handbook for Educators
Sherri MorrisI became involved with AAEE seven years ago when I attended my first conference and job fair in Indianapolis, and have not looked back. In fact, since that time, I have attended every annual conference, and even served as a conference co-chair and conference programming chair. More importantly, I have built friendships and a professional network with amazing educators across the country. These connections are instrumental in my work to recruit teachers to staff the schools in my district. AAEE has given me a resource for quality teacher applicants that spans the nation. I can pick up the phone or email a university colleague to request applicants for openings I am trying to fill. I have also found the expertise shared in the Job Search Handbook (JSH) to be a valuable resource for the student teachers with whom I work. Its articles and practical tips offer new job seekers sound professional guidance directly from experts in the education hiring arena. The JSH is the perfect vehicle for school district employers and college career center staff who want to share their knowledge and impact the careers of young educators. I hope you will consider contributing to the 2019 edition!
Dr. Rebecca FaberWhen I began with UNL’s Career Services office in November of 2000, my predecessor told me that I had to continue the office’s membership in AAEE and go to the annual conferences. She was right. Through my involvement in AAEE, I learned how to be more effective in my job, both through readily available resources as well as through networking with colleagues across the country. I feel that I offer students the most relevant information available to help them as they seek education employment in the U.S. and beyond. I’ve had the opportunity to participate fully in AAEE by presenting at yearly conferences, serving on the Board of Directors, and helping to edit the Job Search Handbook. I enjoy the editing process (yes, I’m a word-nerd), but I also enjoy seeing how all of the helpful articles come together as one product that is beyond anything else available for education candidates. I’m proud of the work we do as the editorial committee.
Allison OdumFor over ten years Addison has worked with diverse student populations in a wide array of environments. From teaching visual arts to elementary children in Memphis, leading teen conservation groups along the coast of Oregon, and working within the framework of wilderness therapy guiding troubled youth in the mountains of Utah, she has enjoyed every minute of her meandering career. She is the founder and owner of Educator Evolution, a K-12 consulting company specializing in training teachers how to manage and build classroom culture. She also has a home at Westminster College working with the Career Center as a coach and mentor. Addison brings creativity, drive and a knack for program development to every organization she becomes a part of. She earned her Masters of Art in Teaching from Memphis College of Art and when not trekking about, dawns her overalls to pluck around on the banjo.
Sheri LederI have a passion for educating children and find it an honor to support the professionals in education. I am a career counselor at Weber State University, Career Services and support the Moyes College of Education students. My career has been in education for the past decade. When I came to WSU, my mentor, Richard Lambert EdD, had been a dedicated member of AAEE and instrumental in the organization of UAEE. When he retired, I was able to continue these incredible connections at both the state and national level. This has been critical as I have dedicated my time to give my students current and valuable information as they transition to their careers and graduate programs. I am thankful for the resources found in the Job Search Handbook and am thrilled to be a part of this team for the 2018-2019 edition.
