Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain insight into the teaching career--from classroom responsibilities to financial considerations (salaries, benefits, etc).  Students will also learn ways they can prepare now, as high school students, for a successful career in this rewarding profession.  The goal of the class is to prepare students to be realistic about the profession so that they have the best chance of a happy, long-term career.

No outside work is required, but I am happy to answer additional questions through my Outschool email!
The class outline will be presented through Google Slides as students engage in conversation and question/answer throughout the session.
As an Exit Ticket, the learner will complete a Google Form at the end of class to ask questions that can be addressed in future class sessions.
