STUDENTS & COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE INVITED TO TEACHING CAREER PANEL ON MONDAY OCTOBER 8TH AT ARCATA HIGH SCHOOL

Our Career Frontiers program invites students, parents, and members of the community to celebrate the profession of teaching and to consider careers in education by hearing career stories from Humboldt County teachers.  Teachers are in huge demand across California. With about a third of the teaching force nearing retirement, the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning estimates that California will need an additional 100,000 teachers over the next decade. On Monday evening, October 8 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. in the Arcata High School library, we will host a panel of five teachers, including three of our NHUHSD family, who will share their career stories, perspective, and information about the teaching profession.  Everyone is welcome to attend this panel to hear career insight, and to ask questions about what it is like to be a teacher.  The guest panelists on October 8th include:
