Noon to 2 p.m.
LeChase Hall, Room 215
University of Rochester's River Campus

The Warner School of Education will host a “WHY TEACH?” event to explore what it takes to become a teacher. The event will provide meaningful conversations about teaching as a career, given the larger educational policy issues impacting educators and K-12 schools today, and highlight the challenges and possibilities of careers in teaching. The event will feature examples of enticing and innovative teaching practices in most subject areas and a panel discussion with current educators who will share their experiences in K-12 public and charter schools. Representatives from the Warner School will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about career opportunities in teaching.
Registration is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. To register for the event or for more information, contact the Warner School at (585) 275-3950 or admissions@warner.rochester.edu, or visit www.warner.rochester.edu.
