Each November, in celebration of American Education Week, the Foundation brings business and civic leaders into the classrooms – in a fun and engaging way — to talk with students in about academics, careers and the future.
Some volunteers read books to pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Some teach practical, personal skills to high school students such as managing a checking account and using credit cards wisely. Others involve entire middle school classes in projects like a mock election. Some give demonstrations using musical instruments or scientific equipment to 5th graders.
You can read a book; share an educational experience or your career; talk about a favorite vacation, hobby, or how a special teacher touched your life. Whatever your skills, no matter your topic, there is a classroom of students waiting to hear from you! To get matched with the appropriate grade and classroom(s), please register to serve as a speaker and someone from the Foundation will contact you soon.
It takes as little as an hour of your time.
To register to be a “Teacher for a Day” during Teach-In 2015, contact your school of choice directly or click here and complete the online registration form today. We can assist in matching you to the school or school area of your choice, and you will be contacted directly by the school’s Teach-In coordinator regarding your assignment.
The earlier you register, the better your chance to be placed at the school of your choice. Registration deadline is Friday, October 30, 2015 unless another date is specified by each individual school.
