Fall Leadership - On Tuesday, October 13, the Teacher Academy students from the Alcorn Career and Technology Center attended the Educators Rising Fall Conference - Region I at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS.  Students participated in various workshops related to their upcoming state competition. Students will travel to Jackson, MS,  in February to compete in education related events.  Educators Rising (formerly known as Future Educators Association) is a network that cultivates highly skilled educators by guiding young people on a path to becoming accomplished teachers, beginning in high school and extending through college and into the profession.
Ole Miss - On Thrusday, October 1, the Teacher Academy students from the Alcorn Career and Technology Center visited the University of Mississippi campus in Oxford, MS.  Recently, Mrs. Nan Nethery's students have been investigating the steps to becoming a teacher in Mississippi.  She felt the students could best relate to these steps if they could see where the process takes place. The students were given a campus tour, encouraged by listening to an elementary education graduate student, and explored the scenes of college living.
