To embark on a collaborative effort to promote, recruit and assist high school, college students and industry professionals in exploring a career in STEM and CTE teaching.
The STEM-CTE/TEACH program strives to be an exemplary teacher pipeline program, allowing students and working professionals to gain access to quality teacher education and explore a career in teaching.
Some of the services that we offer are:
- Teacher Assistant positions with stipends available to students – this will allow RHC students to observe and assist our faculty in the classroom to explore teaching as a career.
- Mentoring program with stipends available for the mentor – this will provide each student w/ a mentor that has traveled through the educational pipeline into CTE teaching.
