Fifty-one students from Pine Bush High School participated in the interactive and intensive four-week program, which was offered to students interested in pursuing careers in elementary and secondary education.
Upon completion, students will receive college credit for the course Multiple Voices in Education. The course was designed by Michael Smith, a lecturer in the Educational Studies Department at New Paltz, and was taught by Pine Bush educators. In addition to attending classes at the high school, the students also took part in special sessions led by Robert Michael, dean of the School of Education, and other educators and administrators from the region.
