Our program is where we try to light the flame, explained Laurence R. Fieber, Recruitment Coordinator for the Urban Teacher Academy, a two-week summer program for high school juniors based at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ).
Now in its third year, the program will run this summer from July 7 to 18. During this time, students experience life on a college campus, participate in field trips to urban institutions ranging from a school for autistic children to the Trenton Soup Kitchen, and learn to teach. The program culminates in a day of students teaching young summer campers classes in math, science, and physical education, areas that are particularly under-served by current teachers in urban environments.
