Teacher Candidates at Montbello have a tradition of hosting After School Seminars for the students. Frequently during the semester, a topic of interest is selected, food ordered, materials copied, advertising selected, and Montbello students drafted to participate in a high-level seminar discussion. At our last seminar, upwards of 60 students attended while the Teacher Candidates facilitated the seminar discussions. Many find that the seminars are a highlight of their teaching experience at Montbello.
