COE to host Educator Wellness Day

On Saturday, September 24 at noon, current mentors working with Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) students are invited to participate in a day of appreciation.

“All across the state we have dedicated professionals who work with our students preparing to become teachers, educational leaders, counselors, and school psychologists,” said Alisa Leckie, Ph.D., assistant dean for partnerships and outreach. “This year, as the Georgia Southern football team celebrates homecoming and teacher appreciation for their Sept. 24 home game, we decided to add in a special day of wellness, relaxation and fun for those individuals who are supporting our students.”

Current mentors will receive an email invitation to RSVP for a two-hour event full of massage techniques, chair yoga, puppy play time, art projects, refreshments and more–all completely free!

“There is no ‘thank you’ large enough for these individuals as they dedicate their expertise time and time again to help grow and advance our students,” said Leckie. “We hope that this will just be a reminder of how much we appreciate our mentors.”

The Educator Wellness event will take place at the College of Education on the Statesboro Campus from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24 prior to the football game at 6 p.m.
