Teacher Work Experience

Sponsored by Chautuaqua County Dream It. Do It.

October 30, 2015 from 8:30am-2:30pm

Dream It Do It Western New York - Chautauqua County in collaboration with Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES, provides a professional development day for teachers and school counselors of all levels and disciplines from eighteen area school districts. The mission is to address common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is and what it isn’t by offering tours, presentations and insight into the area’s local manufacturing industry. In the morning, teachers are scheduled to tour 2-3 companies, depending on their discipline and interests. Following the morning tours, teachers gather at Cummins JEP for lunch, presentations, reflections and a tour of the facilities. Teachers gain an appreciation of the economic impact of manufacturing in Chautauqua County, the careers available in the area, skills required in the workforce and authentic applications for the core curriculum. Many teachers are also parents, adding another essential constituent to the event.
