Belmar Teachers Seeking Community Members to Walk in Their Shoes for a Day

The Belmar Education Association is seeking community members to participate in its “Teacher for the Day” program, to be held Tuesday, May 16.

BELMAR, NJ — Ever consider being a teacher? At Belmar Elementary School, community members are being given that opportunity on Tuesday, May 16.

The Belmar Education Association will host a “Teacher for the Day” program, designed for individuals who want to experience first-hand an entire school day, performing all the duties of a teacher — from teaching class and supervising recess to performing lunch or hall duty.

“We’re looking for people who want to come in and see what we do on a daily basis,” said teacher Jeanice Arcos at last week’s Board of Education meeting. “Parents get to see what we do, but members of the community usually don’t have that chance. We want people to get a better understanding of the educational process.”

She and colleague Randi Fromkin are leading the program, which is part of an initiative offered through the New Jersey Education Association. They stressed that participation requires a full-day commitment and guest teachers will not be left on their own, regardless of what grade they are teaching — from kindergarten through eighth grade. Cooperating teachers will be right by their sides, making sure to collaborate beforehand to develop lesson plans together.

When Arcos and Fromkin spoke at the April 27 school board meeting, they made sure to extend the invitation to its members, as well.

The deadline to sign up is Monday, May 8. To register or for more information, email either teacher: Arcos at or Fromkin at
