Fullerton : High School Teachers to Instruct at University
Three high school teachers have been selected to teach college-level courses at Cal State Fullerton during the current school year.
The three are Martin V. Bonsangue of La Puente High School, William R. Burns of Sonora High in Fullerton, and Kenneth H. Robinson of Esperanza High in Anaheim.
One or more high school teachers are selected yearly to spend a year on the Cal State Fullerton campus.
“We see this program as an opportunity to increase the interaction between the university and the high schools that we serve and draw students from,” said James O. Friel, chairman of the Cal State Fullerton mathematics department.
“With a high school teacher in our midst, we have ready access to information about what high school students are studying and what they’re actually learning. That knowledge will help us adjust our curriculum to make it compatible and relevant for incoming freshmen.”
The high school teachers, among other things, work with education majors at the college, giving them guidance on how to deal with teaching situations.
