Toledo Public Schools (TPS) and Lourdes University are pleased to announce the new Lourdes Teaching Proud and Strong Partnership scheduled to begin in the 2017-2018 school year. The new partnership is open to rising juniors and seniors at Bowsher, Rogers, Scott, Start, Waite and Woodward high schools who are participants of the TPS Teacher Education Exploration Program.
TPS participants can earn college credit from Lourdes University as they learn firsthand what it is like to be a teacher. Additionally, their course work while in high school includes field experiences at local TPS elementary schools. Mr. Michael Heinze, a Waite High School teacher, will serve as the Lourdes University Adjunct Instructor with classes initially offered at Waite.
Students who become a licensed teacher in the State of Ohio and who successfully complete their degree at Lourdes University will receive priority-hiring status from TPS and a potential signing bonus.
