News 6 staff visit Central Florida schools for Teach-In Day

Central Florida schools hosted a Teach-In Day Thursday to bring members of the community into schools to help inspire a future generation of professionals.

To help schools celebrate American Education Week, News 6 staff members played a huge role in the teach-in events.

Anchors, reporters, photographers and more members of the News 6 team went into classrooms to tell students what it is like to work in the TV broadcast and journalism industry.

Some students even got to look inside a TV news truck.

Even though it was just an hour out of their day, News 6 hopes each student walked away learning something new while having a little fun.
