Call Me Mister: Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models


Monday - June 17, 2013


This week on the podcast, we'll hear once again about the initiative started years ago at Clemson and four of S.C.'s historically black colleges to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader, more diverse background, particularly among the state's lowest performing elementary schools. Student participants are largely selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities. The podcast features Call Me Mister staff and a "Mister" who finished the program in 2004, who now is the principal in one of the state's elementary schools. Call Me Mister has grown to a point at which the idea is active in half of the teacher education programs in the state and in other states, as well. Currently, over 100 "Misters" are now teaching in South Carolina elementary schools. Join us for this week's podcast!
