High school students who are thinking about becoming teachers can take a class called Teachers for Tomorrow. And if they attend Varina High School, they will be fortunate enough to have Christine Pedersen as their teacher. They will be in for a treat as they go on field trips to work with younger students as well as be actively engaged in interactive classroom projects. One such project had each student writing a book for younger students in which the subject of an educational barrier was broached.
