This program is for students interested in pursuing a career in education.
All courses in this program benefit from a partnership with Indiana University Southeast. That partnership allows for experienced guest speakers and educational field trips throughout their time in the program. Students also get hands on experience in various grade levels throughout the Silver Creek School Corporation. Students in all classes also compete in a bulletin board (or door) creation contest that lets them showcase their creativity and ability to impact the classroom/school culture in a positive way.
