For this #TeacherTuesday post, we’re shining the spotlight on Wendy Leyden, an inspiring cosmetology studies educator at the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology, a school serving eight Montgomery County school districts.
As an advocate for career and tech education for over 25 years, cosmetology education has provided Wendy with the opportunity to share inspiration with her students every day.
She runs the cosmetology clinic on most Thursdays and Fridays during the school year and part of the summer. “The cosmetology clinic is a great way for students to learn how to best communicate with their clients, and the importance of building relationships, as well as building their technical skills,” says Wendy. “We run the clinic just like a salon, so these students feel comfortable entering the field after attaining their State Board of Cosmetology license.”
Bucks and Montgomery County public schools work to provide a wide variety of high quality educational opportunities and access to a broad spectrum of career paths that inspire students to find their niche. Who’s inspiring your students?
