Office of Teacher Preparation Awarded Virginia Department of Education Grant

Read time:

Dr. Marsha Sprague, Professor of English and Director of the Office of Teacher Preparation, was awarded a grant from the Virginia Department of Education to continue CNU’s clinical faculty program in partnership with Newport News Public Schools.

The $24,000 grant provides special training for cooperating teachers in Newport News on how to better supervise teacher-interns, including candidates in CNU’s Master of Arts in Teaching Program, as they gradually assume all duties of a teacher in the last semester of their preparation program.

“This program has provided a pool of highly involved, effective cooperating teachers who welcome their Christopher Newport interns each spring,” says Sprague.
