Considering a teaching career? Oakland University will offer a workshop, in Macomb County, to give aspiring elementary education teachers a look into the profession. The event – Career Exploration: Elementary Education in the 21st Century (K-8) – will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 17, at the Macomb University Center in Lecture Hall B.
“This event is a great opportunity for transfer students, career changers and graduate students to learn more about a career in elementary education and the many pathways Oakland University offers to help you achieve your goals,” said Julie Trube, interim executive director of OU in Macomb County.
A panel of experienced K-12 educators from Oakland University’s School of Education and Human Services, Van Dyke Public Schools, Chippewa Valley Schools and Utica Community Schools will share insights on a broad range of topics, including:
- What it means to be an Elementary School Teacher in the 21st century
- How to become a Kindergarten or Elementary Education teacher
- The teacher work environment
- Teacher salaries
- Job outlook
The workshop will provide information to those seeking to complete a bachelor’s degree program, or who already have a bachelor’s degree and are interested in changing careers to education. Refreshments will be served.
