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 volunteer 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 2012, contact your school of
choice directly or click on Speaker Registration 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

coordinator regarding your assignment.
The earlier you register, the better
your chance to be placed at the school of your choice. Registration deadline is Monday, October 29,
2012 unless another date is specified by each individual school.
