Chevron Hosts Plaquemines and St. Bernard Parish Teacher Externship Day
On Thursday, June 9, teachers from Plaquemines and St. Bernard Parish Schools took part in a Teacher Externship Day held at Chevron’s Oak Point Plant in Belle Chasse. Teacher externships offer a unique professional development opportunity whereby instructors receive insight into a company’s operations in order to help better connect classroom instruction with the workplace. During the half-day visit, Chevron employees lead teachers on a tour of the facility. They made stops at different workstations and allowed participants to shadow employees in a variety of roles. Throughout the morning, the teachers found out more about the trends, skill requirements and opportunities in the oil and gas industry.
