Cobb Chamber Offers Chance to be a Teacher for a Day

The Cobb Chamber is looking for business and community leaders to participate in the Teacher for a Day program on Wednesday,  October 2, for Cobb County Schools and Tuesday, September 23, for Marietta City Schools.

This innovative program asks the local business community to take a day away from the office and spend it in a classroom. Teacher for a Day gives business executives a true picture of public education in action.

The Cobb Chamber will place volunteers in Cobb and Marietta City schools to experience a day in the shoes of a teacher. Volunteers will work side-by-side with a Cobb County or Marietta City Teacher of the Year for a full school day. Applications are due Friday, August 8.
