USBA Education and Training Presentation

Written by

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

For many years, the Wahlquist Spanish Department carried out a service project for the students in central Ogden, delivering school supplies, hygiene items, warm clothing, and books to Dee Elementary. With the closure of Dee, the project has now been reestablished at Madison Elementary School.  

A fundraiser that started in November and a coat drive through December allowed Wahlquist Spanish students to bring a large supply of donations and over a thousand books for Ogden’s inner city students to keep and read during the winter break.  Wahlquist’s choir provided a beautiful performance for their school, and then students from the Spanish Department helped little kids find books they wanted to read. Thanks to all those who have and continue to support this project!

This Distinguished Service Award honors individuals for their service and contributions to high school activities. This is Geoff's 24th year as choir teacher and director at Fremont.

Weber School District Career Technical Education (CTE) received a warm reception and gracious hospitality on a recent visit to Kimberly Clark.

Students had the opportunity to listen to various speakers from Kimberly Clark. The students now have a better idea of all the things that happens behind the scenes to make and produce diapers and other products made by Kimberly Clark. The information the speakers provided gave our students additional resources as they make decisions about their career choices.

One highlight from the event was when each speaker talked about what it took to work in their field, whether it was additional education or on-the-job training. It showed they never stop learning. Students also heard them talk about the passion they had for the job they were doing! This is something that all students need to hear and see in action. It was great to hear from people who love their careers or jobs, and make learning fun! Various speakers also talked about the need for collaboration, communication, and problem solving.

Lakeview Elementary Students Visit November Board Meeting

Written by

Some of the students from Lakeview Elementary were invited to the November board meeting to share how they are using the 7 Habits of Happy Kids at Lakeview. We had a student from each grade share how they have had success with implementing the habits in their lives. The whole group shared our school mission statement.    

The West Haven Academic Team visits the Weber School District Tech Shed and uses The Design Thinking Process to update the mission and vision statement for the school. This thinking process is a structured framework for identifying challenges, gathering information, generating potential solutions, refining ideas, and testing solutions.
