A look at what some teachers are learning during Teacher Training Day
November 7, 2018— Wondering what Renton teachers do during Teacher Training Day?
Here's one example: Nearly 80 Hazen High School staff members recently took part in training sessions to better connect their classroom work with career-connected classes that will help students make choices about future employment opportunities. The teacher training, led by Hazen High Aerospace Technology teacher Jonathan Clark, included hands-on sessions in welding, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Boeing riveting stations, woodcarving and more. There were also representatives from Boeing, Hexcel, Construction Center of Excellence and other industry leaders to talk with teachers about how they can continue to help high school students be ready to enter a high-paying jobs right after high school.
The work is part of the district’s commitment to providing students with a well-rounded education, so they have many options for a successful future after graduation.
