Holli Pickett listened intently as she moved from station to station within Indiana State University’s Cunningham Memorial Library listening as the librarians described the databases available to students.
For the Bedford North Lawrence High School senior, it is part of the decision process on where she wants to attend college to become a math teacher.
“I wanted to learn more about the department of education,” she said about visiting ISU as part of the Teachers of Tomorrow program on Tuesday (March 25).
The program is a way for high school students, who are interested in becoming teachers, to learn more about what it would take to put them in a classroom, and how ISU’s College of Education is prepared to help get them there.
“This event provides prospective new students with first-hand insight into the curriculum, the courses, the faculty and the field of education,” said Rich Toomey, ISU director of admissions. “As prospective teachers, this program will provide both an opportunity to experience the profession that is teaching as well as engage with university faculty in a direct and personal way.”
Almost 90 high school students and parents attended the day, which included a discussion session on what the future teachers would need to do and classes they would need to take as well as an attendance at an education class.
