I prepare and place student teachers for full semester experiences through three special, "cultural immersion" opportunities:
- The Navajo Nation Program, with placements on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah;
- The Overseas Program, with placements in eighteen countries worldwide (Australia, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, England, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Tanzania, Turkey, and Wales);
- The Urban Program, with placements in Chicago city schools and neighborhoods through collaboration with Chicago Public Schools.
Through the Experienced Teachers Program, I also provide inservice teachers with opportunities to live and teach overseas for three weeks during our summer months, when many schools abroad are still open.
In all of the Global Gateway programs, immersion into the host culture through school and commmunity participation is a hallmark.
