Celebrating Read Across America Day
The students in Woodlawn's Teaching as a Profession course celebrated National Read Across America Day with our littlest Warriors on Thursday, March 2, 2023. The day, which occurs each year on the birthday of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss, was established by the National Education Association in 1998.
Students Attend the Baltimore County Educators Rising Conference
Students are embracing the calling of teaching as a profession
Our Teacher Academy of Maryland students took part in the Baltimore County Educators Rising Conference at CCBC-Dundalk on March 3, 2023. Under the leadership of our TAM coordinator, Ms. Goldring, Woodlawn's TAM program is preparing students for postsecondary opportunities in the field of education. TAM seniors are currently taking part in internships and apprenticeship programs.
Schoolwide Dress for Success Days: March 15th and 16th.
Encourage your students to come to school dressed to impress
Remind scholars to stop by Ms. Hudson's room to have their pictures taken in their professional attire.
ProStart In-House Job Fair
Food and beverage employers still needed for March 10th student job fair
On March 10, 2023, hiring managers will visit Woodlawn High School to interview upper-level ProStart students for part-time and summer positions in the food service industry.
Students in Woodlawn's ProStart program must meet a 400-hour work-based learning experience requirement in order to complete the program.
Our ProStart coordinator, Ms. Maddox, conceived of this in-school job fair to meet the needs of her students.
"This opportunity is exciting for our students to not only get real world experience but also a way for them to complete the required hours for the program," said Ms. Maddox, ProStart instructor.
ProStart provides students with an introduction to the food service and hospitality industry. The program’s curriculum allows students the opportunity to develop and demonstrate skills in safe and sanitary food handling and preparation techniques. Students also learn to prepare a variety of foods while developing a broad understanding of the career options available in the food service and hospitality industry.
There is also a focus on assisting students in gaining industry certification. Students have the opportunity to earn the ServSafe credential.
Interested employers should contact Ms. Maddox, lmaddox2bcps.org, for more information about the job fair.
