Presentation: “Observations on STEM Education in Latin America”

Latin American Studies

Chadd McCloane“A teacher opens a window into your soul every time s/he teaches.” 

This quote works both ways, because good teachers open their hearts, too. Within every classroom dwell individual lives and local cultures just waiting to be discovered. Dr. Chadd McGlone founded the nonprofit Teachers2Teachers to unite US teachers with their counterparts around the world. Focusing on STEM, the exchange of knowledge and cultures creates opportunities not only to foster global citizenship among students but also to change hearts and minds. Dr. McGlone will open a window into the communities in Latin America where he has worked, sharing how T2T is changing STEM education so that today’s young minds are ready for tomorrow’s challenges. Because education knows no borders.

Pennsylvania CareerLink Job Fair 2017

Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex

Career and Professional Development Center

As part of their ongoing efforts to assist area workers and employers, state Sen. Don White, R-Indiana, and state Reps. Dave Reed, R-Indiana; Jeff Pyle, R-Ford City; and Cris Dush, R-Brookville, will co-host a job fair from 11:00 a.m. (Veterans admitted at 10:30 a.m.) to 4 p.m. on May 4 at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex, 711 Pratt Drive, on the IUP campus.


The fair was previously held at the S&T Arena.. Reed says the move to the KCAC will allow the job fair to have more involvement from the IUP community, and perhaps could keep them living and working here.  And coming right before graduation, Senator White says it’s a prime opportunity for local companies to meet with motivated individuals.IUP President Michael Driscoll says he’s pleased that the event is moving to campus, which offers the resources of the university’s Career and Professional Development Center.


In addition to White, Reed, and Dush, other sponsors include the Indiana office of PA CareerLink, the county commissioners, and the Chamber of Commerce.  CareerLink’s Kevin Lazor says they are hopeful tat the change in venue will give graduating seniors and local jobseekers the opportunity to find a career and stay in the region.

Joins us for the opening reception of the 2017 BA and BFA Exhibition.

This exhibit runs from May 4 to May 13.

Free admission.

Presentation: “STEM Education in Latin America: How You Can Get Involved”

Humanities and Social Sciences Building, Rm. 126

Latin American Studies

Chadd McCloane-Guatemala

Teachers2Teachers recognizes that it’s vital for teachers to prepare students for a more interconnected world.

By organizing travel opportunities, T2T encourage teachers to interact with, coach, and learn from local educators in other countries. U.S. teachers bring this global perspective, knowledge, and skillset back into their own classrooms, along with their rediscovered passion for education. Through a focus on STEM, teachers are better able to foster their students’ creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. Dr Chadd McGlone, founder and executive director of T2T, will share stories of teacher trips to the biodiversity heartland of the Galapagos Islands, indigenous mountain villages of Guatemala,and an isolated jungle community populated by escaped slaves in Ecuador, among others. You will also find out how you can get involved.
