Teaching Opportunities at Tech

One of the greatest opportunities NMT has given me is the option to earn my teaching license through an Alternative Licensure Program. While completing my engineering degree I can take classes in education to earn my license.

As part of one of my education classes, I have been given an assignment to observe teachers in the classroom and substitute teach for credit. After earning my substitute teaching license I finally stepped foot in the classroom today and taught for the first time at the local high school. I couldn’t have started my teaching career off on a better day. The students were excited to be in school because of an upcoming football game and everyone shone with pride for their school during the pep rally. I was able to interact with students and practice fundamental skills I have learned at New Mexico Tech.

I am beyond elated to have been given this opportunity to learn and forward my career outside of school.

Signing off,

Erica
