18 Teachers Join GATE Program
The Greenville Alternative Teacher Education (GATE) program is beginning its second year with 18 new math and science middle and secondary teachers in 15 different schools. These teachers are currently participating in a three-week intensive Summer Institute to prepare for their students and classrooms. Topics include developing relationships, classroom organization and management, lesson planning and engaging teaching strategies. Sponsored by Duke Energy, all of the sessions are taught by Greenville County Schools administrators, staff and teachers with expertise and experiences in specific areas. In addition, the teachers will gain valuable experiences spending several days working alongside and teaching students in the Building Educated Leaders for Life (Bell) summer program located at Tanglewood, Berea and Lakeview middle schools.
