Aztecs For Education Seeks to Serve Credential Students and Community

Aztecs For Education (AFE), a new on-campus organization that looks to support current credential candidates within the College of Education, is making waves within the College’s credential student population.

The organization has a specified mission to “Teach, Learn, and Care” for not only current teaching credential candidates, but also for the greater San Diego community. Through building networks and performing community outreach, the group hopes to expand their own personal growth and development.

“We hope to meet the needs of the large credential candidate population as well as helping our youth community,” said Daisy Delacruz, Executive Director of Aztecs for Education and current SDSU multiple subject credential candidate.

Aztecs For Education has also included College of Education credential program team leader Dr. Virginia Loh-Hagan as its faculty advisor. As a team leader of two credential programs, Loh-Hagan is well-versed on what it takes to better serve credential students while simultaneously serving the community.

In future months, Aztecs for Education hopes to strengthen their community ties through multiple charity events. These include plans to organize a CPR certification event, a Field Day Fundraiser with a local school, and an educational conference. In addition, AFE has received a Student Success Fee grant and will be hosting a literacy event for a kindergarten through eighth-grade school in San Diego’s Barrio Logan district.
