Career Day in Philadelphia Fills Education Students with Passion and Purpose

By Kelsey Goodson ’17

Career Day in Philadelphia Fills Education Students with Passion and Purpose

On April 6, students from the Early and Primary Education Department embarked on a field trip to Philadelphia, led by professor Sandy Pesavento and Dona Bauman, Ph.D., alongside Elizabeth Rozelle, assistant career development director. The trip was intended to provide intimate insights and new perspectives regarding possible career opportunities at both The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the DePaul Catholic School of Philadelphia.

At CHOP, the education students attended a panel discussion led by child-life specialist Rose Seelenbinder, CCLS, program coordinator in the Child Life, Education and Creative Arts Therapy Department at CHOP. During the discussion, they learned about the various career opportunities that the hospital provides, from child-life specialists to art and music therapists to teachers who work with students to provide comprehensive educational support. Later in the day, the group volunteered in the pre-K — 4th grade classrooms at DePaul, reading stories and planting flowers with the students.
