Teacher Education Program Engages Students Through Collaboration Across Disciplines

Connections

February 12th, 2014 by 

Heather Johnson

In the February issue of Connections, an online publications of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, Heather Johnson, director of the Teacher Education Program at the College of the Holy Cross, writes about the program’s collaborative partnerships on and off campus.

Johnson  uses the example of William Geddes, a senior physics major at Holy Cross who is completing his student teaching at Doherty High School in Worcester.

She writes, “Billy possesses the characteristics that the TEP program at Holy Cross seeks to attract—deep knowledge of content, creativity, and dedication to student achievement. The program demands academic excellence and thoughtful leadership, with the stated goal of preparing effective, reflective, justice-seeking educators in an urban setting. Through publicity and conversation, the TEP is working to increase visibility and shift the usual dialogue around teaching, particularly in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines.”
