BHS seniors celebrated for commitment to become teachers

Two seniors who plan to become teachers took part in a signing ceremony on May 22 at Burnsville High School. The ceremony, similar to those where high school senior athletes sign letters of intent regarding where they will play college sports, honors students who are committed to pursuing a teaching career.

Brian Moruri plans to attend St. Cloud State University and pursue a music education degree. Katelyn Zierden plans to attend Gustavus College and pursue an elementary teaching license. Four other students in the Education Pathway weren't able to participate in the signing ceremony. Amber Kausel plans to attend Normandale Community College to pursue an elementary education license. Olivia Kaser plans to attend Minnesota State Mankato and study school social work. Maddy Boyko is headed to St. Olaf College for music education. Arianna Brandt is going to Winona State University for Elementary Education.

Teachers Matt Deutsch and Andrea Parent organized the event. To open the ceremony, Deutsch praised the students' commitments to make a positive impact on the world through education and reminded them that they have a whole community of educators supporting them in the teachers and staff members of District 191.

Education is one of the Pathways programs offered at Burnsville High School. Students can earn college credit through the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system without ever having to leave the school. Additionally, thanks to a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education, students cam receive $6,000 scholarships to attend a college with an approved teacher education program.
