LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - High schoolers from the area thinking about a career in teaching were able to learn about their potential futures at UW-La Crosse.
10th through 12th graders stopped by the UWL campus Friday to preview the college's teacher education majors.
The 30 minute lessons included elementary, high school, physical education and health, and art education majors.
Organizers say with a need for teachers across the country, this event could be the starting point for some future teachers.
"They get to get a hands on approach with several different faculty members and students, and go through maybe what a lesson might look like if they were to teach it in the classroom. For some people that's all the push that they need to decide this is the pathway that they want to go through," said Teacher Certification Officer Ashley Cree.
Students from eight schools in our region attended the teacher education major event.
