Studying Leadership Skills

Overall, these classes truly help to uphold the tradition of excellence that makes up Del Oro High School and the surrounding community. The outreach of these programs extends far beyond the school, and students are often recognized for substantial dedication and accomplishments.  

Leadership Teacher Pages

Elected student body and class officers as well as appointed officers will constitute this class and be directly responsible for organizing and conducting student body activities. The class will include problem 
solving, decision making, project planning, basic techniques and skills of leadership, basic communication skills, group processing, and personal development.

Teachers in Training
Teacher in Training offers qualified students an opportunity to explore the field of education. Students are assigned to a classroom teacher who mentors them in lesson preparation and classroom 
management skills. TNT students may choose to work at Del Oro or an elementary site. Reliable transportation is required for those students choosing to work off site, although some students may walk 
to Loomis Grammar School.

Current or future WINGS members constitute this class, and are selected through an application process. WINGS is responsible for planning, organizing, and conducting the Big Brother/Big Sister 
program, New Student Orientation and freshmen activities. WINGS will assist the freshmen throughout the first year with the academic and social skills needed for success. The purpose of the program is 
to allow successful upperclassmen to teach the culture of the school to the freshmen and guide them towards a memorable and productive high school experience.
Senior Instructor 
Student instructors are seniors or exceptional juniors who have had at least three years of experience in the subject with a "B" or better or are concurrently enrolled in the third level of the course. They are highly motivated, independent workers who have an interest in the 
subject area and teaching. Students must complete an application with consent from a teacher.

Peer Mentors 
Students will be selected and placed in the class after the application process is complete. All students who would like to be selected as peer mentors should sign up for another elective in the interium. This class is designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn communication and listening skills, investigate school and 
community resources and develop their own sense of self. Peer mentors will then use learned skills to help with, but are not limited to, new students, conflict management, students in trouble, and work with other minor school and/or home related problems.
