Elementary Teacher Candidates = 100% in TERI Partner Network
During fall 2012, 100% of teacher candidates in the elementary education program, a total of 75 pre-service teachers, will have student-teaching placements in TERI Partner Network schools. While the majority of elementary education candidates were in partner schools this school year, a few still needed to be placed outside the network as we built our relationships with partner schools' principals and staff. But starting in 2012-2013, all elementary candidates will be experiencing their clinical placements 'in network'! Such placements ensure more cohesion between the candidates' coursework and clinical experiences and allows supportive, enriching cohorts to form within buildings and districts as candidates spend their full year placements clustered with fellow U of M teacher candidates.
TERI Partner Network districts include: Brooklyn Center, Burnsville, Columbia Heights, East Metro Integration District, Edina, Forest Lake, Minneapolis, St. Paul, and White Bear Lake.
