The Barrow County School System invited the Barrow County Chamber of Commerce members to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at life in our schools. Twelve community members signed up to become a "Teacher for a Day."
Paired up with the 2022 "Teacher of the Year" at each school, Chamber members spent a full day in the classroom on Friday, Feb. 17. They helped with instruction, worked with students, and learned about the teaching profession. Participants shadowed the teachers and saw how school has changed since they were a student. (We promised that no homework would be assigned!)
We were happy to have the Chamber members enjoy a firsthand look into our classrooms!
