As the Democrat and Chronicle gets us ready to head back to school, it was great to see an article this morning on career changers and local opportunities to enter teaching from other fields. See “Rochester-area workers forge a path from industry to classroom” in today’s D&C. Chris Young, a master’s student in Warner’s science teacher preparation program, was one of the teacher candidates featured in the article.
I had the great pleasure to watch Chris in action last month at the Warner School’s Get Real! Science Camp in collaboration with Rochester’s Freedom School. Chris is a natural as a teacher and this seems a fitting opportunity to share photos of Chris and his students, conducting research on Charlotte Beach.
