Beyond the Classroom
College Awareness Day
In early 2016, the Ayers Ryal Side Elementary School in Beverly did a college awareness day during which all of the teachers wore clothing from the college they attended. A bar graph on the hallway bulletin board made it clear that Endicott College was the most represented college in the school! Currently, the Ayers community includes 11 staff members who either attended undergrad or graduate programs at Endicott. Ayers students also wore clothing from their favorite college as part of the day's focus was to help them become excited about a college education. Many expressed interest in Endicott. Pictured in the photo are (from front left to back): Erin North '06, Lauren Oxford (Seabrook) '11 , Meaghan Hart '04, Samantha Bolduc '15 , Ann Poeske (Masters '11), Katelyn Appt '13, Bianca Cotter '13 and Masters '14, Sarah Person '14 and Masters '15. Missing from the photo are Endicott graduates Ashley Trowt (Labella) '07 , Barb Amiro (Masters '93), and Dianne Moffett (Masters '99).

Service Learning Opportunities
Education faculty and students partner to develop and implement various initiatives in local schools, including in-class tutoring, reading programs and after-school programs in subjects such as science and literacy.
Education students are able to explore the philosophy of the early childhood schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, which emphasizes the "culture of childhood" and the images and potentials of the young child within that culture. Through college course work, as well as travel to the town of Reggio Emilia, students learn how to facilitate learning experiences that encourage young children to wonder, to investigate and to construct knowledge.
