Tomorrow's Teachers is a five-credit elective course designed for 11th and 12th-grade students who are interested in a multifaceted year-long elective. Some students have expressed a definite interest in becoming teachers; others plan to pursue different careers but realize that the Tomorrow’s Teachers class offers life-enriching experiences. The intention of this course is both to create an interest in the profession of teaching and to promote an understanding of young people and the American educational system, however, individuals interested in working in day-care, pediatrics, family counseling, or social work may also find this course helpful.
Students will be exposed to guest speakers, videos, current publications, field trips, discussions, teamwork, community service, videotaping, role-playing, decision making, problem-solving, interviewing, public speaking, practice teaching and observing. Four New Jersey universities currently offer college credits to high school students who successfully complete the Tomorrow’s Teachers course elective.
