How often did you wonder as a kid whether you’d ever need Trigonometry skills in the real world? What if your teacher could provide students with an example of how engineers, accountants or scientists truly need that math because the teacher had actually worked with these professionals in the real world?
That’s what the Maryland Chamber of Commerce’s Teacher Externship program aims to do. The program bridges the gap between businesses and educators by pairing high school teachers with top Maryland businesses that can provide hands-on experience in industries related to the subjects they teach.
We spoke to Whitney Harmel from the Maryland Chamber Foundation about the program and what it hopes to offer teachers and businesses in the coming year.
If you or a teacher you know are interested in applying, check out the Maryland Externship application page. And find more information on the Maryland Chamber’s Advocacy programs here.
