Our Special Education Partner
The Department of Education at Hartwick has secured a formal commitment from Springbrook, a local special education school, to host Hartwick student-teachers for both the mini-practicum and the full student-teaching practicum. For each of the past few years, Hartwick has placed 10-15 student-teachers in Springbrook, www.springbrookny.org.
We feel this relationship with Springbrook serves our students well, providing a quality placement experience in a special-needs setting. Springbrook Executive Director Patricia Kennedy believes, "Springbrook benefits immensely from our relationship with Hartwick College. The educational background and commitment of the Hartwick students makes them a highly valued part of our organization. Many of the students who have served at Springbrook stay connected to us as a volunteer, supporter, or summer or full-time employee."
