Education, Child Development, and Family Services
Students who participate in these pathway classes become teachers at the same time, working with youth while they learn the best methods of doing so, including career opportunities as education professionals in and out of the classroom. Students will learn about human growth and development, development theories, safety, communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills, and various special needs populations. Throughout the pathway, students will participate in public speaking, problem solving, analytical reading, expository writing, and using various technology tools designed for classrooms settings. Upon graduation, they will be prepared to continue their career training through partnerships with Cerritos College and Cal State Long Beach.
