Working to support effective teaching methods and practices, the U.S. Department of Education has been working with the broader education community on proposed regulations to strengthen teacher preparation programs.  A variety of materials have been posted on the website at www.ed.gov/teacherprep including the press release, fact sheet, and detailed PowerPoint presentation regarding the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in this arena.

Dare To Care: Those Who Inspire!

Every day throughout our experiences in middle schools we are inspired by those very special people who impact others in meaningful ways. These remarkable people come in the form of students, teachers, teams, administrators, educational assistants, custodians, media specialists, and essentially anyone you can imagine! The Minnesota Middle School Association wants to recognize these caring individuals for "Daring to Care"!
