President’s Message

Kappa Delta Epsilon (KDE) is an honorary educational fraternity which supports the cause of education by fostering a spirit of fellowship, high standards of scholastic attainment and professional ideals among its members. We are an active group engaged in preparing our members for the teaching profession. Kappa Delta Epsilon was organized March 25, 1933 in Washington, DC.

 

Creed

To love, respect, understand, and guide the student for a life of unfolding possibilities is the task of the teacher; to give aid, counsel, and support to fellow teachers and to all agencies promoting the love of truth, beauty, and goodness is the privilege of the teacher.

Welcome to the Kappa Delta Epsilon website. KDE was founded in 1933 and is very active both at the collegiate and alumnus level. We welcome your interest in our organization. We strive to enhance the teaching profession through fellowship, scholarship, and professionalism.

 

Thank you,

Toni Gorrell

KDE National President

If there is not an alumni chapter available to join, a member who has graduated from a collegiate KDE chapter may join KDE as a Member-at-Large. That member is a part of the Alpha Fidelis Chapter and receives THE CURRENT and information from the national office.  A Member-at-Large may attend regional meetings and national conventions, but may not hold office.  For a Member-at-Large application form, click here.
