Several Triad students are on the path to be the next generation of teachers and are receiving some assistance through a new class at the high school.
The new Experiences in Education class is an introduction to the field of education, examining the different aspects of education as a profession. Students study organizational structures, curriculum, instructional strategies, teacher responsibilities and a host of other topics to prepare them to enter the field.
“This is a brand new course within our Education Pathway program, which aims to educate and motivate students to pursue a career in education,” said Experiences in Education teacher Jessica Day.
The class in April had a signing day for a number of seniors who plan to enter college to study education. Future Teachers of America also awarded three $1,000 scholarships to Emily Beard, Kayli Mongomery, and Katie Fortin.
Day said the scholarships would not be possible without the support of local businesses, which include Casey’s General Stores, Truck Center, Subway, Brooks and Sons Roofing, Integrity Spine and Joint Center, Tracey and Jason Countryman, Tara Sievers, and the Lory Theater.
