Effective Fall 2015
All TPI Members must show their Mt. SAC Student ID for check-in, no exceptions. Member verification will take place at the first initial check-in, and a TPI Fall 2015 sticker will be placed on the back of ID.
Staying "active" in Teacher Prep
Staying "active" with TPI will allow members to continue to receive our support and services, which include early registration, book loans and workshops.
In addition, every TPI member is required to submit 5 volunteer hours in an educational setting.* If more than 5 hours are done per semester, they can roll-over to the following semester. This requirement is for the member's benefit and is geared toward enhancing the member's experience with the age group that he/she desires to teach in the future. Some possible volunteer opportunities include*:
Volunteer time-cards for Spring 2015 are now available in the TPI Center.
*The above are only suggestions; students are responsible for seeking and obtaining their own volunteer hours. However, if any volunteer opportunity comes up during the semester through TPI, students will be informed via Mt. SAC email.
Note: paid positions in a academic setting DO NOT qualify as volunteer hours.
