The Ready Set Teach program traveled to a local daycare called Bagdad Head Start, a U.S program that provides early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. The class is offered at LHS to sophomores, juniors and seniors and is sponsored by Alicia Carlisle.

“I’m looking forward to learning more about kids with disabilities,” junior Lennox Yocham said. “I’m also looking forward to seeing all the kids grow and develop throughout the time that I’m there.”

The class will travel to Head Start during their first or third period class every A day starting January 17 through the middle of May. If students continue to take the class for two years, they are eligible to get certified as a preschool teacher when they graduate high school.

I’ve been taking students here for years and every year has a great turn out. They love working with the kids and staff at Head Start.”

— Alicia Carlisle

While students are at Head Start, they will be working with kid ages ranging from 12 weeks old to six years old. They do various activities such as help teachers lesson plan, set up activities for kids to do and participate with the kids as well.

“I really enjoy working with kids,” junior Riley Wells said. “I want to work with them when I’m older, so this is a good experience for me.”

About the Writer
Amanda Nguyen, Staff Writer

Hello! My name is Amanda Nguyen. I am a junior, and this is my second year as a staff writer for The Roar. I have a passion for writing in all forms, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me throughout my life. When I’m not writing for our school’s newspaper, I am either with friends or family, looking for something in the pantry, or, of course, shopping. Let’s have a great year, Lions!
