Eleven Hazelwood West High School seniors are participating in a program called, “Exploring Teaching.” The program offers students who aspire to become teachers an opportunity to teach in the District’s elementary and middle schools.
“I love what teachers do,” said Jonel Harris, senior at Hazelwood West High School. “They impact not only young kids’ lives but older kids' lives as well.”
The program includes an internship for seniors who complete the prerequisite work. It combines in-class coursework with on-site teaching practice. Teaching projects include keeping daily logs or blogs, weekly journals, preparing and presenting a lesson, and working closely with students of an assigned teacher.
