Human Services Pathway
The Teacher Academy is designed to introduce students to the various careers in the Education and Training Career Cluster. Students participate in a field-based internship that provides students with hands-on experience working in a prekindergarten, elementary or middle school classroom. In addition, students will learn the necessary background knowledge of child development and principles of effective teaching through a hybrid program of learning which may include online assignments, class meetings, extended research projects, field trips and interviews. Students work under the joint direction of an EFE instructor and exemplary teachers in their area of interest as they learn to plan and direct instruction for individuals and groups, develop materials, assist with record keeping and complete other responsibilities of teachers and other school personnel.
Students may take this course for two years.
