Cadet teachers visit elementary special education classroom
Seniors from the DeKalb High School cadet teaching block program traveled to Waterloo Elementary School last week to visit a special education classroom. Cadet teaching is a program for seniors who wish to pursue a teaching degree in college. Students are partnered with IPFW for dual-credit certification. They receive college-level instruction about student learning styles and how to teach students, and they investigate educational philosophies and socio-economic situations that affect education. Students are placed with a teacher and classroom in the district for six hours per week from September through May.
