Cooperating Teachers

Dear Cooperating Teachers of Interns and Practicum Students,
Cooperating teachers provide an important service to the education profession by mentoring the future generation of teachers. This is especially significant to partnering school districts in which the practicum experience also provides opportunities for preparing potential new faculty for your schools. Seventy-five percent of our graduates obtain employment in our partnering school districts.
With that in mind, please accept our sincere appreciation for hosting our teacher education candidates in your school this semester. The Spadoni College of Education and Social Sciences relies on the relationship with your school as a professional partner to provide relevant and meaningful field/clinical experiences for our teacher education programs.
It is our hope that your experience hosting our students inspires you to remember what brought you to the profession in the first place. If you would like to know more about any of our undergraduate or graduate programs in education, we would love to talk with you. Enjoy your semester and know that we appreciate everything you do each day for the students of South Carolina and for the students at Coastal Carolina University. 
Betsey Costner, M.Ed.
