The Teaching Careers program, instructed by Jenny Meers, is a one-year program designed to provide students with authentic teaching experiences while partnering with local schools to complete observation hours and assignments related to course work. The program is open to high school seniors.  

All sending schools underclassmen at the Career Center were invited to participate in the Shadow Day. A total of 37 students participated.

Throughout the day, the shadow students participated in building tours, ice breakers and collaboration exercises.

They also listed to presentations and slideshows on the Teaching Careers program, had a question and answer session with current cadets in the program, and had the opportunity to discuss current issues in education.
