Teaching future teachers
Stillwater Area Public Schools is nurturing future educators. We’ve teamed up with Century College to offer a professional development program for high school and college students who dream of becoming teachers.
The Grow Your Own Educator program is aimed at attracting and retaining top-quality diverse teachers. It’s designed to equip students with all the essential skills and knowledge needed to excel in the teaching profession.
The program kicked off this week with two days of training, covering important topics like curriculum development, classroom management, and student engagement.
Once the training is done, students get the chance to dive deeper into the world of education by spending six hours working on curriculum development. After that, they get to put their newfound knowledge to the test by spending three whole weeks in real classrooms during our elementary Summer Success program, working side by side with experienced teachers.
High school student leaders who take part in this program will even get the chance to enroll in an Introduction to the Teaching Profession College in the Schools course at SAHS. Watch the video to learn more about the program.
