What learning design are you leveraging to provide teachers with access to learning that reaches beyond traditional classroom or workshop settings and allows them the opportunity to engage in "real-world" experiences that will enrich the classroom-to-career connections they make for our students? Plano ISD has just the thing. PISD partners with The Plano Mayor's Summer Internship Program & Capital One to offer the Teacher Externship Program. This program provides unique professional learning opportunities for PK-12 grade teachers in collaboration with local partners in business and industry. Come learn about PISD's externship journey; spend time identifying valuable insights for career-to-classroom application and thinking about how these concepts can be applied in your setting.
