Teacher Pathway Program Hosts High School Visits

This fall, the Orange County Teacher Pathway Partnership at Fullerton College hosted visits for Katella, La Habra, and Sunny Hills high school students interested in becoming teachers.

The Teacher Pathway Partnership is a program that guides high school and college students to explore and pursue the many opportunities available in the education profession.

More than 80 students and their advisors toured Fullerton College on September 27 and October 27; met Teacher Pathway counselor Jeannie Mitsch; and visited the Child Development and Educational Studies (CDES) Lab School.

“It was exciting for the future teachers as they learned about the benefits of the Teacher Pathway Program, took a campus tour, and discovered the rich environment of the CDES Lab School,” said Camina Sylvestro, project coordinator.

Professor Patti Green Pappas, CDES Lab School programs and curriculum specialist; and Sonia Semana, interim CDES Lab School director, explained the nature-based learning curriculum and gave high school students an opportunity to explore the hands-on environment.

After this visit, students commented that they were even more inspired to become teachers and looked forward to attending Fullerton College.  One of the unexpected highlights for the La Habra High School Teacher Club was meeting President Schulz and taking a photo with him.
