Teacher Cadet is a one-year, five-credit course open to qualifying junior and senior students who plan to pursue a career in education.  The goal of the course is to encourage top-performing students who demonstrate strong interpersonal and leadership skills to consider a professional position in the educational system.  The class will allow students to examine all aspects of the educational system through rigorous, hands-on curriculum that incorporates three major themes:  experiencing the profession, experiencing the learner, and experiencing the classroom.  Additionally, all students will be appropriately placed in a field experience in which they will utilize original lessons targeted at improving skills in critical areas such as math, science, language arts, foreign language and social studies.  Guest lecturers will be invited into the classroom to provide students with a solid understanding of the educational system from all perspectives.

* All interested candidates must sign up for the class, then will be required to complete an application process that includes letters of recommendations, a written essay, an interview and a cumulative 3.0 GPA.*
