Students will build a foundation for teaching by learning the history, structure and governance of teaching, applying professional teaching techniques in the VTfT classroom and in field experiences, and reflect on heir teaching experiences. Additional educational leadership opportunities are offered through the student organizations, FCCLA (Family Career and Community Leaders of America) and Educators Rising. In this course, there will be a focus on both elementary and secondary teaching and will adjust the focus based on the interest of the class.
