Dorchester's aspiring teachers earn college credits

Posted

CAMBRIDGE – Several hard-working students will have something valuable to show for their summer: three college credits.

For the second summer, the High School Teacher University, a partnership between Dorchester County Public Schools’ Educational Equity Task Force and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, is offering a college-level course at Dorchester Career and Technology Center especially for aspiring teachers, with the hope of encouraging young people to return to Dorchester to teach.

This year’s course, Introduction to Educational Psychology, is taught by Dr. Richard Warren, a former Maryland State Teacher of the Year and now Richard F. Hazel Professor of Education at UMES, with support from Mr. Todd Nock of DCPS.

Most of the students attending also took last year’s course. If they return next year for the third course in the three-year cycle, they will graduate high school with nine credits in the field of education, a head start to a teaching degree.
