Teach-In Speakers

Be a Teacher for a Day

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Engaging the business community in educational excellence. 
Preparing students for the future.

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 about academics, careers and the future.

Some volunteers 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; give students a window into your career; or talk about a favorite vacation, hobby, even a special teacher who 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.
