This partnership utilizes the resources of CMU faculty and students, St. Johns' teachers and students, and the community resources of local farmers and businesses to improve the student achievement in mathematics for Gateway Elementary. St. Johns Superintendent Dedrick Martin shared, "In order to capitalize on the wealth of agricultural knowledge within St. Johns, the district sought out community thought partners such as Agro-Liquid, Carla Wardin, Farm Bureau and others to help identify key Ag-STEM concepts and opportunities which will be infused into the STEM curriculum." Thanks to the efforts of Clinton County Farm Bureau, a "Farmer in the Classroom" has been implemented, each grade level has been paired with a local farmer, which involves farm field trips and integrated Ag-STEM lessons. The involvement of stakeholders beyond St. Johns School District and Central Michigan University, has strengthened the current PDS model. The partnership will continue to grow and develop over the next four years as future plans include, but are not limited to; integrating agricultural lessons into science and mathematics lessons, teaching CMU methods courses at St. Johns Public Schools, infusing the co-teaching model into the clinical experiences, and expanding the professional development activities into the middle school with educational technology. Students will be introduced to science, technology, engineering and math concepts that have a decidedly agricultural focus, through a partnership between the school district and Central Michigan University. Gateway is more than a place for our teacher candidates to complete their clinical experience, it is a community where the staff, as a collective whole, are committed to preparing future teacher candidates and working with CMU faculty to offer a meaningful introduction to the teaching profession. Gateway has a created a culture that incorporates our Pre-Student Teachers and embraces their active engagement in the school community. We look forward to the possibilities this partnership will bring.
