Educators Rising at Westlake High!

Are you interested in possibly becoming a teacher or a coach? Maybe a counselor or a para?

Would you like to get a head start on your teaching preparation or maybe just see if its right for you?

Westlake High is now offering Educators Rising!

This is a two-year course that takes you through the beginning stages of a teacher preparation program.

During this course you will observe live classrooms in our area at the elementary, middle, and high school level. You will also learn classroom management and teaching styles.

We will also take field trips to the school board office and attend at least one school board meeting.

This program is limited to Juniors and Seniors. Seniors may take this course.

What do you get from it?
