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, 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.
In May of 2009, we hosted nine Liverpool students. This year, we will host six teacher candidates and they will be placed in grades 2, 3, 4, ECSE and Mrs. Kok’s cognitively impaired classroom. Some names you may be hearing in your home are: Miss Browse, Miss Davis, Miss Duffy, Miss Hamilton, Miss McGregor, Mr. Stalker. If you come to visit during our JUST WRITE celebrations, be sure to introduce yourself and welcome them to Georgetown.
