Education Students Benefit From New Partnerships

Education Students Benefit From New Partnerships

Southeast’s education students continue to prove how in demand they are and the newly established EDhawk Scholars program is evidence of it. The College of Education, Health and Human Studies launched the program to pair student teacher candidates with local school districts in Cape Girardeau, Jackson, and Sikeston, Missouri for a full year to polish their teaching skills while building future employment connections.

The program enhances the Southeast students’ hands-on field experiences, gives them additional opportunities for paid substitute teaching positions and networking, and provides potential access to the hiring process. If the student teaching semester is successful, students are then guaranteed an interview if a position in their field arises. For local schools, the program gives them early access to teacher candidates and early opportunities to identify potential hires, while developing and mentoring the next generation of teachers.
