In order to enable the Education Department to establish and sustain a professional relationship that will benefit both the schools, and the preservice teacher candidates in the Education Department, we have created special partnerships. The goal of these special partnerships is to build a relationship with a single school that will allow some preservice teachers multiple experiences in a single setting, enabling them to understand the nuances of climate, camaraderie, and school culture. These partnerships will also facilitate increased communication and professional development between the university and the school faculty, one of the most valuable components of the relationship. Current partner schools are: Possum, Fulton, and Northwestern Elementaries, as well as Clark Preschool.
