Teacher Academy gives teacher wanna-be's early start
(2007-11-26)
(WOUB) - High school seniors in Athens, Hocking and Perry counties interested in teaching can jump-start their careers in the Tri-County Teacher Academy.

The new program is operated out of the joint vocational school in Nelsonville and was started by instructor Lesa McDaniel.

McDaniel says the Academy students do anything and everything the classroom teacher will allow them to do, including, possibly, developing a lesson plan to teach.

She says the goal is to be hands-on with the kids, not just sitting and observing.

In the end, each student does a portfolio that reflects all 19 of the criteria required to pass the test to get a teaching license.
