The PACE Program, This Schools Got Talent (Part 2) and the Summer GeoTech Workshop
Monday - March 21, 2011
South Carolina's Program of Alternative Certification for Educators (PACE) has for years provided persons from outside the Education field who are interested in a career change and retirees who would like to continue working with an opportunity to become certified in a subject area and teach in the state's schools. On this week's podcast we'll talkwith the Director of Alternative Certification who will provide information about the PACE certification process and will alert listeners about two upcoming information sessions, one to be held in the upstate and the other in the low country. We'll provide you with an update on the "This School's Got Talent" program which is ending its submission stage and entering the decision process, a process which ultimately will allow Facebook viewers to decide the winner and performer at South Carolina's Teacher of the Year Banquet in April. Finally, we'll talk about the summer GeoTech institute at USC available to only 12 educators who are interested in further implementation of technology into Geography Instruction.
