02/22/21: LaGrange High School TAP Class

Two seniors, who are interning through the Teaching as a Profession (TAP) class at LHS, are teaching at GNMS this semester. Merideth Baswell and Hayleigh Seabough know they want to teach older grades when they graduate from college. This is the first time practicum is being taught in lower grades for high school students looking to go into teaching. The TAP students usually have their practicum at FFE, but since these 2 seniors are looking to get a degree in secondary education, GNMS was the perfect fit.

The students teach Monday - Thursday and also participate in the '345 Thrive' mentoring program for elementary students.
