Partnerships and Outreach
Marietta College is fortunate to partner with area schools to engage in activities that mutually benefit our teacher education candidates, school faculty, and students.
Each partnership enables our teacher candidates to have rich clinical experiences that help them grow and develop into highly competent beginning teachers. Staff members at partner schools have opportunities for formal and informal professional growth and development and students at each of the school sites gain from having “extra teachers” in the classroom.
Marietta College Education majors begin interning in local classrooms starting their first year, and can be found in partner districts in Washington County (Ohio) and Wood County (West Virginia) .
