Mentor Appreciation

mentorchalkboardWe are so fortunate each year to get together in the spring to honor the teachers that host our full-time teacher candidates in their classrooms year-in and year-out. Our teachers sacrifice an enormous amount of their time investing in our teacher candidates and we are so appreciative of them!

At the appreciation reception, UA faculty, staff, teacher candidates, and mentor teachers celebrate the conclusion of the academic year by enjoying a meal together, recognizing the outstanding interns of the year, and honoring mentor teachers of the year. We also give away donations generously provided by local businesses.
