Business Professional Application

To participate, sign up below!

For the Teach-A-Thon, we recruit business professionals to teach virtually or in person in a classroom; however, it’s not career day. Instead, each volunteer will teach a lesson. By having business people teach actual content, we accomplish two goals. Students see the subject matter as more important, especially as many business people can explain real-world applications of the subject. And, the business people see into the classroom and discover why we need to support our public schools. As part of the program, business people will tell colleagues of their experience to gain support for our public schools.

How did you hear about the Teach-A-Thon?
1. I will dedicate 2-4 (or more if you choose) hours of volunteer work (Oct. through Feb.), including the teaching session. 2. I will call or email my assigned teacher in order to agree upon a lesson that I will teach and a date/time to teach. 3. I know the Kick-Off Event & the Taste of Education Victory Celebration/Food Festival are optional; I will try to attend. 4. I will spend one hour teaching a lesson to students under the guidance of my assigned teacher. 5. I will help The Education Fund champion the teaching profession, including telling as many people as possible about what I learned and raising funds to support classrooms (amount to be raised is decided by me – it’s my goal!).
