TEXT [ Teaching EXcellence Team ]
The TEXT program is designed to allow excellent teachers in urban, suburban, and rural areas of Kansas City an opportunity to share their expertise with education students at Avila University, as the students begin to network with professionals in education. Teachers selected as members of TEXT may work with Avila students during various phases of their teacher preparation program:
Practicum (an INTRODUCTION to education), class observations, and student teaching.
TEXT mentors may be teaching in urban, suburban, and rural settings. The goal of TEXT is to prepare future teachers for increasing student success in American classrooms in diverse settings. TEXT is an early step in this direction.
