The Professional Partnership Network (PPN) is designed to give future educators extended field experiences prior to entering their own classrooms. Candidates will partner with a mentor teacher each semester at a participating school. The program allows candidates to spend significantly more time in the same classroom each semester, learning professional skills through immersion in authentic classroom settings.
The P-5/LBD PPN program is a three semester experience that begins in the fall of the applicant's junior year. Candidates will submit their applications to the PPN during the spring semester of their sophomore year. If accepted into the program, candidates will register for PPN block classes each semester. The PPN classes are integrated into blocks to provide candidates the most effective transition between university coursework and practical application of theory in the school setting.
During the final fall semester, candidates return to their Morehead State University campus early. Working alongside their mentor teacher, candidates learn how master teachers establish a supportive and positive learning environment for their students. Candidates may choose to spend one of their eight-week clinical practice sessions with their fall mentor teacher.
The semesters are broken down as follows:
