Posted: August 28th, 2014

CLASS OF 2014A – Lake Superior State University teacher interns - six elementary education students and three secondary education students – run through a workshop that sets goals for their upcoming placement into Michigan and Ontario public, charter, and parochial school classrooms. This semester's cohort has preparations in math, English, special education, social studies, health science, physical science, computer science, interdisciplinary science, arts and humanities, and Earth and space science. Student teachers complete a full semester of experience under the mentorship of K-12 classroom teachers, with support and coaching provided by university supervisors. In the background are mentor teachers from schools that will be hosting them. Moving clockwise around the table from lower left, and listing hometowns and teaching sites, are Janessa Stutz (Levering, Mich.; St. Ignace Elementary), Sam Schlosser (Pellston, Mich.; Sault Township Elementary), Andrew Doerr (Remus, Mich.; Mackinac Island), Mitchel Mast (Ludington, Mich.; Soo High), Alyssa Rickley (St. Ignace, Mich.; JKL Bahweting) Alexandra Liedke (Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.; Holy Cross Catholic, Sault, Ont.) Elizabeth Browe (Eckerman, Mich.; Ojibwe Charter), Rose Ward (Harbor Springs, Mich.; Mackinaw City), and Arielle Kammers (Cedarville, Mich.; St. Ignace Elementary). Run a Web search on LSSU education for more information about that area of study at Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)
