It is that time of the year when we host student teachers from Hope Liverpool University. Each May term, Hope College (Holland, Michigan) participates in an exchange program with Hope Liverpool. Just as we host their teacher candidates, the Liverpool schools host Hope College teacher candidates.
The goal of the program is to help these future teachers experience global teaching and learning settings and through that experience understand the commonalities and differences in helping all learners to achieve.
Over the past four years, we have hosted 30 student teachers. This year, we will host 15 teacher candidates and they will be placed in grades 1-5. Some student teacher names your child may be referencing: Miss Arblaster, Miss Daniell, Miss Laverick, Miss McDermott, Miss Turner and Miss Walters.
If you come to visit during our JUST WRITE celebrations, be sure to introduce yourself and welcome them to Georgetown.
