Each year, teacher candidates are able to apply for a PDS undergraduate student representative position at Buffalo State. Serving as a PDS Student Representative (PDS Rep) is a rewarding, collaborative, and educational experience through which students build their resumes, develop their teacher candidate voice, and take advantage of opportunities for professional development and networking.

Upon returning from our International PDS teach and study abroad programs, teacher candidates often become the most effective “unintentional” ambassadors for IPDS. IPDS Student Ambassadors are able to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about international travel and recruit their peers by facilitating class presentations, hosting open house events, and using social media to share the experiences of former participants as well as opportunities and pathways for engaging future participants.
Visit the IPDS Student Ambassador page to view past participants and learn how to become an IPDS Student Ambassador.
The Future Teachers Club is a teacher candidate/student led club that allows members to direct what they want to do and what is important for them to experience within the educational community. The FTC brings all of the education departments together (Early Childhood, Elementary, Exceptional, Art, CTE, Music, and all Secondary programs) to create a community of education students that can come together in a fun and assistive way.
Visit the Future Teachers Club page for more information on how to participate.
PDS hosts and participates in a variety of events for teacher candidates to develop their teaching practice, connect with peers and professionals from local and international organizations, and network with area schools.
