Teacher 4 A Day Scheduled for March 31, 2015
The fourth annual Teacher 4 A Day (T4AD) program will take place on Tuesday, March 31st in all schools in the Douglas County School System. T4AD gives local business people and community supporters an opportunity to visit teachers in their classrooms and experience a typical school day from teachers’ perspectives.
Teacher 4 A Day, as well as Principal 4 A Day, held during the first semester, are programs initiated by Superintendent Dr. Gordon Pritz in cooperation with the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Kali Boatright. The participants will shadow selected teachers in elementary, middle and high schools in half-day (8 - 11:30 a.m. or 12 - 3:30 p.m.) visits.
The T4AD guests are exposed to the many exciting programs offered in our schools as well as gaining first-hand insight into the challenges that schools face on a daily basis.
