The Douglas County School System is pleased to announce its newest program in partnership with the Douglas County Chamber, “Teacher 4 A Day.” This program will take place on March 28th at all Douglas County Schools.
“Teacher 4 A Day” is a program adopted by DC School Superintendent, Dr. Gordon Pritz and Chamber President & CEO, Kali Boatright. This program will allow members of the community to visit one of the 35 schools and two specialized program schools in Douglas County and shadow a teacher for a half school day. School teachers from each grade will be paired with a local member of the community who will experience a typical day in the teacher’s shoes. Participants will not be placed in their children’s classrooms.
Guest teachers will be exposed to the many exciting programs offered in our schools as well as gaining first-hand insight into the challenges that schools face on a daily basis. “We feel it is highly important for members of our community to see what goes on in our schools,” commented Boatright, “many of our members, like myself, have children in the school system, and this is a great way to see what happens after the first bell. The Chamber is proud to support this program and is looking forward to sending our community back to school!”
Applications are due March 14, 2017 and are available through the Board of Education office or the Douglas County Chamber website at www.douglascountygeorgia.com. All applications should be sent to Nell Boggs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
