Teacher Cadet is a course offered to upperclassmen at SHS. The class helps students gain experience in the education field by allowing them to visit schools and shadow teachers. Through this course they can expand their knowledge of teaching further than they can in their own classrooms.

“When I observe other schools, I sit in the back of the classroom and take observation notes. For field experience, I observe, do work for the teacher, lead lessons, and occasionally teach my own lesson” Camille Silvernale, senior, shared on her personal in class experience at Summerville Elementary School.

Although she enjoys her overall experience in the classroom, Silvernale’s favorite part about going to the elementary school is the attention she gets from the kids.

“They love when you come to their class. Since I’m in high school, they think I’m so smart! It’s a really good hands on experience” she stated.

The opportunity gained field experience is seen as beneficial to the individuals who take the course.

“Teacher cadet it’s a project based class, so field experience gives us a lot of first hand knowledge as far as how teaching in the classroom should be done. Also, in college we will be ahead of those who may have no experience at all” said Silvernale.

Along with gaining experience comes learning lessons. Camille has learned many valuable lessons, but one that stands out most to her involves the children individually.

“The biggest thing I have taken away from Teacher Cadet is that you never know the home life of a child who walks through the door. It’s important to make your classroom feel like a safe place for every child no matter what they have going on at home” Silvernale explained.

Teacher Cadet is a beneficial course for those who wish to pursue education in the future. Students who are interested in taking Teacher Cadet next year can see Mrs. Plane in room 159.
