The UTSA Office of Teacher Education Services received an award of recognition for continued support from the San Antonio Area Personnel Administrators (SAAPA). The award was presented to the Office of Teacher Education Services during the October SAAPA luncheon.

“It was very gracious of SAAPA to give us this recognition,” said Dr. Blanche Desjean-Perrotta, professor and associate dean of Teacher Education. “It is a wonderful affirmation of the work we do together to ensure that our students are well prepared for the classroom.”

The Office of Teacher Education Services, which is housed in the College of Education and Human Development, prepares pre-service teachers for the classroom. The office coordinates fieldwork experiences, student teaching, TExES preparation, and teacher certification.

“I am very proud of my staff for all the work they do for our students in partnership with our school districts,” said Desjean-Perrotta. “I am so please that they have been recognized for their efforts. It is a symbol of our commitment to this city to provide the highest quality teachers we can.”

SAAPA is an organization comprised of personnel management directors from area school districts. For the last 20 years, they have worked with the Office of Teacher Education Services for assistance with pre-service teacher placement for fieldwork, service learning projects, and student teaching.

“It has been a long and fruitful partnership for all involved,” said Desjean-Perrotta. “We hope this partnership will continue long into the future.”
