PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOOLS

FOR MENTOR TEACHERS

About the Perks Card Program 

 

Professional partnerships with our school-based colleagues shape the heart and practices of our pre-service teachers, and our future. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for you - our teacher partners - who make such a huge difference in the personal and professional lives of our teacher candidates.

In an effort to recognize and honor the time, work, and sacrifices you provide for our students and programs throughout the academic year, we are excited to launch the new teacher partners Perks Program, which provides special discounts and offers as well as access to certain activities and venues to our cooperating and mentor teachers. 

View the list of participating vendors below to learn what benefits are available to you, and how those perks can be redeemed. You must show your Perks Card as well as personal identification (e.g. drivers license) to the vendor to receive individual offers.

Visit this page often to discover new and revised offers and opportunities for teacher partners!

We greatly appreciate and recognize all that you do to help our novice teachers enter the profession of teaching. You truly make a difference in the professional and personal lives of our teacher candidates—thank you!
