Over a dozen North Bullitt High School students are working hard in an educational pathway class to one day earn the title of being a teacher.
Social studies teacher Angie Duvall said the rising educators in the Teaching and Learning Pathway are very excited to be in the classrooms.
“This pathway is absolutely blossoming at North Bullitt,” she said. “It is so refreshing to see our next generation so excited to teach!”
Shelby Andrews, Jaden Barker, Tara Bradshaw, Emma Burton, Alexis Cahoe, Grace Gipson, Patrick Kang, Sarah Hundley, Mary McCoy, Emily Minnis, Destiny Ray, Alexis Reed, Myriam Rivas, Selena Santillan, Pamela Sizemore and Matthew Smith are part of the new Teaching and Learning Pathway which is also a dual credit through University of Louisville.
Duvall said eligible students can earn three credit hours per class and may complete three courses while at North Bullitt.
“These students are enrolled in the first course, EDTP 201 The Teaching Profession,” she explained. “In this course, they will learn the basics of being a teacher in today's society, history of teaching, challenges to teaching, and standards.”
Students will also complete 18 observation hours by entering classrooms and watching educators at work.
“They will do nine observation hours at either Freedom Elementary School or Hebron Middle School and then nine observation hours at North Bullitt,” Duvall said. “I am very excited to teach this class and look forward to molding the next generation of educators.”
