iTeachAZ boosts number of prepared student teachers!

ASU Logo  
Three years ago, the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College pledged to infuse state school districts with more teachers better prepared to enter a classroom. Key to its effort has been a year-long pre-K-8 student teacher residency for ASU education majors called iTeachAZ.

Since then, Teachers College has scaled up by 400 percent the number of iTeachAZ student teachers it places in Arizona’s pre-K-8 schools – from only 200 in fall 2010 to 1,000 aspiring teachers completing the 2012-2013 academic year. At the same time, the college expanded its number of partner school districts statewide from seven to 35.
