: A critical teacher shortage exists in Michigan due to plummeting enrollment rates in teacher preparation programs. Further, Michigan students are struggling to reach basic levels of literacy and math proficiency. To help tackle these problems, Hope Network’s Michigan Education Corps delivers the evidence-based Minnesota Reading and Math Corps models in schools across the state. MEC utilizes AmeriCorps members as interventionists to deliver research-based interventions to students age 3 to grade 8. Through the MEC experience, all interventionists are highly trained, receive on-going instructional coaching, are paid, and can access the Segal Education Award and other benefits.

This presentation will discuss how collaboration between MEC, Michigan Department of Education Office of Educator Excellence and higher education partners like Davenport University’s College of Urban Education has resulted in an innovative effort to help address the teacher shortage by creating a “tutor-to-teacher” pipeline that benefits schools, individuals who are exploring careers in education and higher education institutions.

Presenters: Holly Windram, Ph.D, Michigan Education Corps; Susan Gunn, Ph.D, Davenport University; Ariel DuVal-Zinn, Michigan Education Corps
