Our initial teacher preparation program, Teaching, Learning, and Leading with Schools and Communities (TLLSC), is field-based and grounded in partnerships with Chicago-area schools, community organizations and cultural institutions. Through these partnerships, our candidates work with educators to provide P-12 students engaging academic instruction while tending to social emotional needs. The linked partnership list provides the names of the sites that partner with TLLSC to prepare our candidates as professional educators by serving as yearlong internship sites during our candidates’ final year of preparation.  Sites listed in bold also serve as learning sites and classrooms for our candidates during their field experiences prior to their yearlong internship.
