This weekend we had the exhausting opportunity to take 51 of our Fremont FFA students to the State FFA convention in Cedar City for 3 days of leadership, learning and competition. We are proud of these kids and their accomplishments and wanted to let you know how they did. Many students competed. We also had 45 of our students help with a day of service in Cedar City, giving community service to our host city. The kids competing had to win at Chapter or Area and qualify to compete at State.
We had several students who competed for State Level Proficiency awards. This is where they compete against all the other students with individual projects in their award area. We had one student win her State Proficiency area in Equine Science (that's horses for those of you who don't know). Only 1st place kids are ranked.
Weber School District CTE has created a K-12 Teaching as a Profession pathway to help combat the teaching shortage. Our goal is to “grow our own” teachers. This program is part of the national Education and Training cluster. This program will offer students opportunities to explore careers in teaching, planning, managing, and providing education and training related learning support services.
The K-12 Teaching as a Profession pathway begins in the 9th grade with Exploring Education. The 10th and 11th grade classes are Teaching as a Profession I & II. In these courses students will explore teaching as a profession through hands-on experiences, gaining first hand knowledge of what it is like to be a teaching professional. As a capstone to the program, students will have the opportunity to earn concurrent college credit through Weber State’s Education 1010 course and can also participate in a Work Based Learning Internship in our district schools with mentor teachers.
Weber District CTE was given the opportunity to present our K-12 Teaching as a Profession pathway at the Utah State Board Association conference
