Training High School Students to Become Educators

Do you like creating learning moments, seeing light bulbs appear as children grasp a concept for the first time? Have you imagined yourself as the teacher who develops engaging and fun lessons, provides support and encouragement to their students, and sets others up for success for a better future?

Join us for EdStart, a new program designed to give you a jump start in your professional career as an aspiring educator! Participants will take an introductory education course where they will study the history of the American education system with special emphasis on historical figures in Mississippi and beyond who have influenced its evolution. In addition to the coursework, participants will enjoy experiential learning activities both on campus during lecture and leisure time as well as within off campus learning experiences based on best teaching practices.
