Beebe Medical Center Hosts Teachers in Statewide Education Program
Beebe Medical Center recently hosted two Delaware teachers who were taking part in the Teacher Externship Program, an educational program coordinated by the Delaware Business, Industry, and Education Alliance (BIE).
Emilia Bohorquez, a Spanish & French teacher from St. Thomas More Preparatory School in Magnolia, and Christine Low, a special education teacher from the MOT Charter School in Middletown, joined the Beebe family to observe the hospital environment and experience the hospital culture. The information, knowledge, and ideas learned from their experience will be brought back to the classroom setting.
The Externship was developed in 2002 to offer teachers the opportunity for professional development and to help teachers share information with their students about the workplace. It is offered through a partnership between Delaware BIE Alliance and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.
