Schaumburg Partners in Education

For nearly two years, the partnership of Roosevelt's College of Education and Schaumburg School District 54's Hoover Math and Science Academy has provided Roosevelt teaching students with the tools needed to propel elementary students to success.

Through this partnership, elementary teacher candidates, with backgrounds in math and science education, are able to complete field and clinical experiences at Hoover, as well as learn new standards and teacher evaluation models that can be implemented into the classroom.

For additional information on Roosevelt and Hoover's partnership, and how you can jumpstart your career in elementary education, contact Lilibeth Castillo, student support specialist, at lcastillo04@roosevelt.edu or call (312) 853-4789.
