Teacher For A Day

Teacher For A Day 2013 – Hosted by Trenton Education-Association at Kilmer ES. All 18 Guest teachers were awesome! Many were from ETS, Concerned Pastors Organization, and two county freeholders. The 18 Cooperating teachers from Kilmer were model hosts and represented a wonderful sampling of grade levels K – 8, Special Education Classes, and Specialists. A remarkable day for all! (Just want to give a shout out to Columbus ES who also offered to host guest teachers. Next year, we will take you up on your offer with the hopes of needing even more schools to participate!)
