Marketing / DECA

Teaching Professions Academy (TPA)

This is a course for students who are interested in becoming teachers or who want to improve their writing and communication skills.


  • 1 bell in the junior year, 2 bells in the senior year that includes an internship and college credit.
  • This is a project-based, cooperative class where students explore the world of education and prepare for college.
  • We also are members of FEA - Future Educators Association - and participate in the state and (hopefully!!) national competition.
  • In the senior year, kids go to different Sycamore schools and spent time learning from the teachers - you can find out of education is really for you!
