Roane State hosting open house for future teachers

Roane State Community College’s Education Department is hosting an open house this weekend for anyone interested in pursuing a career in education.

The event will be held from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, April 30, in Room 224 of the O’Brien Building on the Roane County Campus.

Everyone is invited to attend and learn more about teaching and other opportunities within the field of education. High school students who may be considering this career path will especially benefit from the information provided during the open house.

Roane State’s Education Department offers classes for students transferring to a four-year university to complete a bachelor’s degree and obtain a teaching license. Programs for early childhood (Pre-K-3rd grade), elementary (grades K-5), and secondary (grades 6-12) education, special education, and physical education are all currently offered.

Additionally, 2+2 programs with Tennessee Technological University are available for those pursuing elementary education as well as secondary education with concentrations in chemistry and math. Students complete the first two years of coursework at RSCC working toward their associate degrees.

Pre-registration is not required for the April 30 open house. Attendees are welcome to drop-in anytime during the event. Light refreshments will be served. For additional information, contact Stacie Bradshaw at
