University of Minnesota
Driven to Discover


From Dean Jean Quam, College of Education and Human Development, University of Minnesota:

"I had a great day yesterday. Stacy Ernst (TERI) drove Gayla Marty and me over to Earle Brown Elementary School where we were met by Superintendent Keith Lester and Principal Randy Koch. Earle Brown is a Partnership School that has 44 of our students placed there this semester!

  • 11 student teachers who have been there since September.

  • 2 more student teachers who just began this January.

  • 11 undergraduate practicum students from the Special Education Block.

  • 20 undergraduate practicum students from the Intro Block.

CEHD is deeply invested in this school. As I moved from room to room, I met many of our alumni who have been hired as teachers. Over and over again, I heard how our students are "the best" and that even teachers who did not want to be cooperating teachers changed their minds once they experienced our students as co-teachers."

-Dean Quam, April 2012

An in depth article about co-teaching will appear in the upcoming Spring/Summer issue of CONNECT, a publication of the College of Education and Human Development. Watch for it here:
