FIU, Miami-Dade CPS launch new teaching academy at Doral high school

FIU’s College of Education and Miami-Dade County Public Schools on Aug. 25 launched the first of its kind teaching academy at Ronald Reagan/Doral Senior High School.

So far, 22 high school freshmen have signed up for the academy, which is the first in Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) to feature a partnership with a state university.

“I know you can all remember your best teachers and I know that you understand how transformational a great teacher can be,” President Mark B. Rosenberg said to the students who attended the academy’s first class. “Let me assure you that working together, we aspire to nothing less for you so that when you graduate from the academy and then you go to FIU and graduate, you will be ready to be not just a good teacher but a great teacher.”
