CREEK WOOD HIGH SCHOOL
DICKSON COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL
Teaching as a Profession is designed for students interested in becoming a teacher, school counselor, librarian, or speech-language pathologist. While in this program of study, students will learn teaching and classroom management strategies, lesson planning, special populations, how to use educational technology, how to become a professional, and more! Upon completion of this program of study, students will have acquired a multitude of skills and experiences and built a professional portfolio that can be used for advanced training as future educators at the postsecondary level. Juniors and seniors in the pathway are eligible to take two dual enrollment courses through Austin Peay State University for a total of 5 hours of college credit.
"It is my goal for students in the Teaching as a Profession program learn not only the skills and knowledge required to become effective educators, but also experience how challenging and rewarding a career in education can be."
