The event will begin with a session featuring motivational speaker, author and actor Jesse LeBeau, followed by two breakout sessions. During the breakout sessions, students will attend workshops on topics including: teaching in the Valley, earning income while studying as a student, teaching science, supplemental contracts and using technology in the classroom. The conference will conclude with a campus tour. INFO: Jesse Farias, recruitment counselor for the Office of Undergraduate Student Recruitment, at jfarias@csufresno.edu or 559.278.2048.
