Learning to Teach: Bowdoin Teacher Scholars Program

Bowdoin Daily Sun - Mon, 04/07/2014 - 13:30

Learning to Teach: Bowdoin Teacher Scholars Program from Bowdoin College on Vimeo.

This semester, fifteen aspiring teachers — three current seniors and twelve recent alumni — are enrolled in the Bowdoin Teacher Scholars Program, a five-year-old certification program run by the College’s education department. In the intensive spring course, the group is learning what it takes to become a middle or high school teacher.

After they have been certified by the state of Maine, the new teachers will pursue a number of paths, from working in public schools to earning advanced degrees. While their career ambitions may vary, many of the Bowdoin Teacher Scholars say they are pursuing a career in education because they see it as a way to help others and to serve the common good.
