How do we train the next generations of teachers?
By starting them young.
Marshalltown High School started an Intro to Education course this school year, with hopes that students will become interested in the education field and become teachers.
The course is taught by Jaime Anderson at MHS, who earned her master’s degree in education this past summer. The course includes work both inside an MHS classroom and observation work by the MHS students in others schools in the district at many different grade levels.
Aside from learning about the teaching field, students are also earning college credit through the dual credit partnership with Marshalltown Community College.
