Come listen and learn from recent Trinity alumni who followed different pathways to teaching on Tuesday October 22nd, 2013 from 6:30-7:30pm in Rittenberg Lounge, Mather Student Center. Guests will appear in person and via web video conference to share their individual stories on how and why they became K-12 classroom teachers.
