The Education Association of Barry (EAB)
Service Scholarship * Community * Professional Development
The purpose of this organization is to establish an association that promotes unity among the pre-service education students and Barry University. The Association shall encourage the pre-service education students to grow professionally and to continue to learn new ideas that will enhance them as future educators.
What the EAB Can Offer You!
The EAB is a professional organization that provides its members with educational and charitable opportunities. Each meeting features a topic presented by a speaker who has expertise in the field.
The EAB teams up with a classroom and participates in a semester long pen pal activity entitled “Barry Buddies”
Not only will you learn information about becoming a teacher that you won’t learn in the classroom, but you will make valuable relationships with other members of the program. It is easy to find a mentor and later, become one.
