Farrington Teacher Academy

Teacher Academy

The Teacher Academy is a two-year program that prepares students to work in early through secondary education. Students develop and teach lesson plans to students in local elementary and pre-schools. They read to classes in a professional manner, give planned and extemporaneous speeches and write coherent essays. Students shall graduate with the ability to identify, explain and demonstrate various educational theories and methods.

Cadets are truly interested in the teaching field, no matter what grade level will benefit from the integrated courses and hands-on experiences and are expected to come to class every day, effectively use independent work time and work well in groups.

The academy sponsors an Academy Parent Night where teachers and students share what they are working on and have accomplished in the program. Students also participate in community service and complete senior projects related to their interests in the field of education and teaching.
