Main News

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Some Abilene teachers are getting out of the classroom and trying their hand at different lines of work.

Workforce Solutions of West Texas is partnering teachers with local and regional businesses for “externships,” which are like internships, but for adults.

The teachers are able to bring the information learned back to the classroom to develop new lessons to help students when they enter the work force.

Externships are held in 19 West Texas counties.
