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.

Thank you @ForsythWoods for allowing me to be a teacher for part of the day and share my knowledge with your kids about the ins and outs of TV news. It was a pleasure talking with your rising stars! They have so much promise. @news6wkmg @OCPSnews pic.twitter.com/OXhMFHadA4— Jerry Askin (@JerryAskinNews6) November 21, 2019
