On April 12, a group of 11 students from Ms. Mack’s FACS courses at the Coosa County Career Tech Center visited the University of Montevallo to support the Education and Training pathway for the encouragement of uprising educators. Mrs. Sharon Haynes with the Coosa County Extension office met the group at the university and went over the different things the Extension office has to offer, the different classes they can teach, the variety of jobs within, and the education needed to fill those positions. Ms. Keslie Garret, Coosa County schools career coach, who also attended the trip, said, “I think we all learned a lot from listening to Mrs. Haynes speak that morning.”
Students then went on a campus tour and were thankful for such a beautiful day. After the tour, the group made a stop at the Child Study Center. This is an on-campus Pre-K where university students can work, as well as do observations for child development courses. The Central group toured the center and received an overview of the daily routine. Next, the students got to experience lunch in a college cafeteria, and they really enjoyed it. The last stop of the day was in an education classroom of future teachers for a question and answer panel. Our students had an opportunity to ask current college students anything they wanted to know about their college experience and their future plans. It was a great day, and we can’t wait for our next trip. Thank you to Mrs. Mack and Ms. Garrett for organizing the trip.
