Educational Careers

Would you like to work with children, be creative, communicate effectively, work with the public and give back to your district and community? Well, that's what you will be doing when you take Educational Careers. Students receive six weeks of classroom instruction to learn the beginning teaching skills and methodology. Once they have completed and passed their test, they will be placed in a classroom 3 - 4 days a week in their home school district with a mentor teacher. They will gain classroom experience first by observing, then advancing to actual lesson development and delivery. Students also have an opportunity to participate in the Educational Career Leadership Club.

(Educational Careers is held at the GI-TEC Mt. Pleasant Campus).
