Students from South Medford High School participating in the Pre-education Pathway, part of the Pathways program, helped put their skills into practice at Jackson Elementary School on Tuesday.

The high school students paired up and each took on a classroom to teach a lesson and have some sort of activity planned.

It's a way for high school students to pursue teaching in the future.

"I just see all the good [teachers] do like they'll take time out of their day," Hayden Tanzi, a senior from SMHS, said. "They're taking their time like after school to help me get through my classes, make sure I graduate, that kind of stuff. I just want to be a part of that."

There are about 50 students from both North and South Medford High Schools who participate in the Pre-education Pathway.
