    Education and Training

    The Education and Training area includes the understanding of the developmental stages of children and preparing students for the experience of becoming teachers. The courses provide students the opportunity to observe students in actual classrooms and later assisting the teacher in preparing lessons for the class. These courses provide an opportunity for real-world experience prior to entering college. The TAFE (Texas Association of Future Educators) club and the Family, Career, Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) organization provide extracurricular involvement for students. Leadership skills, citizenship, personal growth and community service related opportunities are supported through membership. Competitive events enhance career preparation, curriculum competencies, self-con

    fidence, and the instructional program.
