HCC to Host Teaching Event
 
WELDON, N.C. – On June 15, Halifax Community College is hosting the “So, You Want to Be a Teacher?” seminar on Thursday, June 15.

The event is focused on the transition from HCC classes to elementary education classes with Elizabeth City State University (ECSU). In an articulation agreement between the two campuses, HCC students who complete the requirements are eligible to transfer to ECSU to complete a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. As part of the agreement, all ECSU classes are offered on the campus of HCC, making the transition more convenient for our students and offering the opportunity to increase the number of teachers in the Roanoke Valley.

The 2+2 Teacher Education program begins in the fall of 2017 and is open to current high school students, teacher’s assistants, and others in the field. Representatives will be present from HCC as well as ECSU. Participants will receive information on how to register, options for financial aid, test requirements, the types of classes offered and hear from former students and current teachers about the program.
