ICE HSI Tampa supports area schools during Great American Teach-In

TAMPA, Fla. – Hundreds of children in the Tampa Bay area learned more about the role of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) during the Great American Teach-In this week.

“The Great American Teach-In is one of our favorite events to support,” said HSI Tampa Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero. “It is an opportunity to show our youth the great work that HSI does in our communities, and around the world.”

The events across the region were also supported by many DHS partner agencies. HSI’s Tampa’s participation included special agents and computer forensic analysts speaking at area schools in support of the Teach-In.

The purpose of the Teach-In is to encourage employees, businesses, community leaders, sports figures, local personalities, retirees, community volunteers and parents to become involved in education by sharing what they know with a new generation. The adults visit the classroom and talk with students about work, career challenges, hobbies and life experiences. They provide real life insights into work and careers and reinforce the importance of education for success in any occupation.
