Educators Invited to Work with Local Manufacturers

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Local educators are being invited to participate in the Educator in the Manufacturing Workplace program this summer to help them bring real-world experience into the classroom.

Participants will attend a four-hour orientation, complete 32 hours of
on-site job shadowing at a local manufacturer between June 19 and August
7, and create and present their experience-based lessons plan at a four-hour final session.

Ohio Educators can choose between earning three free graduate-level semester hours at Youngstown State University  or a $425 cash stipend.

Pennsylvania educators earn Act 48 hours and a $425 stipend.  The program can help to support teacher evidence and growth utilizing the PA Department of Education’s Teacher Effectiveness Model. ”

While the program is a meaningful experience for all educators, it is particularly valuable for junior and senior high school STEM teachers.

Applications for the program must be received by June 5.

Educators or manufacturers interested in participating in this program should contact Paula McMillin, Educator in the Manufacturing Workplace coordinator,
