It is that time of the year when we host student teachers from Hope Liverpool University. Each May term, Hope College participates in an exchange program with Hope Liverpool. Just as we host their teacher candidates, Liverpool Elementary 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 three years, we have hosted 30 student teachers. This year, we will host 15 teacher candidates and they will be placed in grades 1-5 and PE. Some student teachers you may hear about: Miss Mikaela Clarke, Miss Sophie Clarke, Miss Amy Durman, Mr. Thomas Faulkner, Miss Chloe Leech, Miss Lindsay McQueen, Miss Abigail Warburton and Miss Hannah Whales.
