Advice for New Grads

Today we celebrate our fall grads, class of 2013. As we send them off, what advice do you have to give?

School of Education Alums in Humboldt

We followed up with some of our local School of Education alums and wow are they doing great things for our youth. Amanda Sharp (North Coast Learning Academy, 1st Grade), Andrew Haraldson (South Bay Elementary, 4th Grade) and Gary Storts (South Bay Elementary, Principal) all completed the teaching credential program at Humboldt State.

In fact, Mr. Storts also recently completed the Administrative program and landed a job as principal a few short months thereafter.

Mrs. Sharp, Mr. Haraldson and Mr. Storts are all Humboldt County natives with a passion for kids and a gift for teaching. Upon graduation from the HSU School of Education, all three quickly landed jobs locally. 

Why Teach?

As a teacher you can make a difference in the lives of young people in your community. Teaching is a rewarding career and well-qualified teachers are in demand!

Why Humboldt State?

The teacher preparation program at Humboldt State offers small class size, individual mentorship, and career outcomes. The graduation and employment rates of our students are among the highest in the country. A hallmark of our program is the considerable amount of time our students spend working in classrooms with mentor teachers and secondary students.

There are jobs and we always need great teachers to influence our youth. If you’re interested in becoming a teacher or learning more about our programs via the School of Education, visit: humboldt.edu/education

Student Entrepreneurs in Hunt for Shot at Big Funding
Each year, entrepreneurial students and recent graduates of Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods have a chance to win up to $25,000 to take their businesses from plan to success through the Economic Fuel competition. This year, HSU students and alumni occupy five of the eight positions in the contest’s final round.
Many students go from dreaming of owning their own businesses, to realizing the full potential when they sign up for the Business Plan Development course with Professor Nancy Vizenor. In fact, two of this year’s finalists — Casey Sarvinski with Humboldt Produce and Jordan Oberg with Tigers Eye Ceramics — enrolled in Vizenor’s course last fall with their passions already in place, and used the class to hash out the details and enter Economic Fuel this year.
In the next stage of the competition, the final eight teams will give presentations to the panel of judges, followed by a question and answer session, between the evenings of Monday, April 23, and Tuesday, April 24, at 6 p.m. in the Kate Buchanan Room. Everyone is welcome to watch and cheer on their classmates, friends and community members. Finalist Presentations will also stream live through http://economicfuel.org/home.html.
