Teach and Reach 2009

Mini Conference Open to High School Juniors and Seniors Looking to Explore Careers in Teaching Nov. 6




The Siena Heights University Teacher Education Program invites high school juniors and seniors to “Teach and Reach,” a mini-conference exploring teaching options and opportunities, Nov. 6, 2009, on the Adrian campus.

The conference will help students learn of the options and opportunities available to individuals pursuing careers in teaching. 


The all-day workshop includes several sessions as well as “mock college classes” that will allow those attending to get first-hand experience with college subjects in which they might be interested.


“And keep in mind that all teacher preparation programs in Michigan require you to major in an academic area such as math, science, social studies, art, English, etc.” said SHU Director of Undergraduate Teacher Education Sally Rae.


Some of the sessions available include the following:

  • The Reality of Teaching and Teachers in the Making: Day-to-day realities and how teachers deal with them. Also, discussion with SHU students who are currently completing their student teaching experiences.
  • Athletics/Options in Education: Opportunities in Higher Education/Athletic Scholarships/K12 Coaching Opportunities.
  • Trends/Practices in Education: Teaching and Learning Styles/Multiple Intelligences Theory/Implications for Teachers and Learners.
  • What it takes: What are employers looking for?
  • What Should You Be Doing Now?: High School Preparation/Financial Aid Options/GPA and ACT Information.

Cost is $15 per student, however, teachers are invited to attend with their student at no extra cost.  Space is limited, and a confirmation letter will be sent once registration is received. The deadline for registering is Oct. 23 or until the workshop is full.
