Teacher Apprenticeship 
The program introduces high school seniors interested in pursuing a teaching career to all aspects of the profession.  This includes learning to do lesson plans, practicing classroom management, grading papers, developing a climate for success, identifying characteristics of a good teaching, writing a resume, studying basic school law, and teaching classes under the supervision of a coordinating teacher.  Students in this program will start with a month long preparatory course before being placed with an elementary or middle school teacher; they will work under the tutelage of their cooperating teacher until late April.  Students must provide their own transportation to and from the school where they are placed.  This program is a full year course and will require a weekly journal and other related projects throughout the year, including constructing a portfolio to record their experience.
