"I am an Ohio University Alumni who was part of the Plains Partnership Program in 2010 - 2011. I am currently a kindergarten teacher in Chicago, IL and working with administrators and a local university about teacher preparation. I felt  that I benefited greatly from our partnership program and wanted to extend that opportunity to other college  students who want to be outstanding educators." - Kaitlyn Carson

"I have been extremely impressed with the overall quality of the teacher candidates from  Ohio University since taking this position and being able to see them during field placements and student teaching assignments is a huge bonus for us when we look for new staff."

"This past Spring I paper-screened over 400 applicants for 7 positions. Two of the 400 plus candidates came from Ohio University's Fellowship Program. They outshined their competition. They were both poised and confident. They knew their content and their pedagogy. While the university cannot instill the values of compassion and respect for individual students, it was certainly evident that these values were nurtured in these teacher candidates. I am very excited to watch our new teachers thrive and excel in the classroom. Based on our conversations I am looking forward to these Bobcats being leaders in our school community." - Michael P. Short, Ed. D. Principal, Perrysburg High School

"I can confidently say that the year-long pilot program experience has already helped me out immensely!" - Zachary Wiard
