This year twelve students completed the Teaching as a Profession pathway, earning college credit. In order to receive the credit, they demonstrated mastery in many topics by passing a very difficult national assessment. The exam included laws that govern education, instructional strategies, history and philosophies of education, and theories of childhood development. In addition, they worked many hours with an elementary or middle school teacher. This program helps them see what it’s really like to be an educator and gives them the opportunity to be a positive role model to younger students in our community.
