Be a Teacher for a Day

Engaging the 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.
