Shadow a Teacher Program

Posted by Admin On 11:23:00 AM
Now that the term is about to start, the Shadow a Teacher program is up and running for its first full school year.

Established in March of 2013, the Pre-Teaching has joined with neighboring school systems to create a shadow program for Tech students considering pursuing a career as a K-12 teacher. The program gives participants the chance to spend one day with a teacher who teaches a subject of interest.  Participating students will spend one day at a high school, middle school or elementary school. Participants could possibly spend one day at each school but would not return to the same school. Students will be able to request a day to visit with two-three weeks advance notice. The Pre-Teaching advisor will be involved throughout the entire process and will coordinate the student and the school before and after the visitation. Participants can be undergraduate or graduate students.

Additionally, the program will serve as a small recruitment tool for the participating systems. Georgia Tech students graduate with highly respected degrees, and many would like to teach in the Metro Atlanta area. An experience at a school would give the student the opportunity to meet first hand with teachers and possibly administrators and help participants make important career choices regarding where to apply for teaching jobs.

The participating schools are:
Centennial Place Elementary (Atlanta: Atlanta Public Schools) (walking distance from Tech Tower)
Lilburn Elementary (Lilburn: Gwinnett County Public Schools) (need car)
Renfroe Middle School (Decatur: City Schools of Decatur) (easily accessible by MARTA train)
Decatur High School (Decatur: City Schools of Decatur) (easily accessible by MARTA train)
Norcross High School (Norcross: Gwinnett County Public Schools) (need car)Marietta High School (Marietta: Marietta City Schools) (need car)
Meadowcreek High School (Norcross: Gwinnett County Public Schools) (need car)

To sign up, click here. (Requests should be made at least two weeks prior to preferred visitation day.)
