PORTER COUNTY CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION Education and early childhood careers


If you are considering a career in education,
this program is an excellent place to start. You will experience direct interaction with children and be supervised under a licensed teacher. You will learn teaching techniques by preparing and supervising planned activities that will enhance young children’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. You will definitely be in front of the learning curve when you start college, because of the experiences that you had in this class.
This program is offered in three different locations and school settings. Cooks Corners Elementary offers experiences with elementary students under the direction of a veteran teacher of students with special needs.  Students will have the chance to work with students with special needs and possibly with pre-school children. South Haven Elementary offers experiences in an elementary school. At Hobart high school, experiences will be available in their state of the art pre-kindergarten class.
By enrolling in the program for two years, you may earn the required clock hours needed to qualify for the National Child Development Associate (CDA) credential. You will earn dual credit with local colleges upon completion of each year. If you really like working with children, check into this program today!
