Rosemary Arioli, Update on PDS Partner, School 28 in Rochester
Nicole Warren (Fall Student Teaching at School 28 and December 2012 graduate) was hired in April to finish the school year as a long term substitute in grade 6 at school 28; she took on a very challenging group with success. I was at school 28 and a teacher stopped to talk and she commented on how impressed she was at the commitment of our student teachers after they student taught at school 28. Our student teachers continue to volunteer at the school (helping with fieldtrips).
