Grow 2 Teach
This program is designed as a comprehensive review for non-instructional employees to get a better understanding of the teaching profession. The series will include direct observation of a teacher collaborative planning meeting as well as a classroom observation preferably in the school at which the non-instructional employee works.
The goal of the program is to transition non-instructional staff, who are interested, into college degree programs with the intention of graduating from an education program and working in an instructional capacity within CCPS. Session three within the series involves a local night with representatives from colleges such as FGCU, FSW, and Ave Maria on hand to share the education programs their schools offer.
