Teachers Taking the Next Step
Work-Based Learning (WBL) is a priority for schools in the Bluff Country Collaborative. Whether your school’s work experience program is big, small, new or long-time running, students benefit greatly from being in the community, developing new skills and practicing abilities. Lewiston-Altura teacher, Joel Ellinghuysen, is currently taking courses to earn a WBL endorsement. La Crescent-Hokah teacher, Jenni Von Arx and Spring Grove teacher, Karen Tisthammer, begin the portfolio process soon for a WBL endorsement. Crystal Sobotta, Houston School Counselor, is excited to build momentum for students and enhance the work experience program.
