Shadow Day

Blaine High School student reading with students at Palmer Lake Elementary School

On February 11th & February 25th, FEC students will cross districts and visit schools within the NW Suburban school districts (Anoka-Hennepin, Brooklyn Center, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose, Elk River, Fridley, Osseo, Mounds View and Rockford) to shadow an educator for a day.  This event will provide students with the chance to gain hands-on experience while giving educators  an opportunity to help mold the minds of our future educators.

Shadow Day has been encouraging because it gives future educators a chance to experience education from a perspective different than their own. Through experiential learning FEC students are able to see how cultural, economical, and social issues can influence day-to-day classroom interaction and individual learning styles.

For students . . . FEC helps them to explore teaching as a career option, provides a realistic understanding of teaching, and encourages students from diverse backgrounds to think seriously about the teaching profession.

For educators . . . FEC elevates the image of teaching and promote it as a challenging and rewarding career and gives teachers the opportunity to examine, clarify, and explain their role in students’ lives.

For schools . . . FEC will attract exemplary future educators and begin averting shortages at a local level, particularly within the areas of math, science, and special education.
