Middle Level Education - the Cohort Experience

Katie Parent

It is such a tight knit group and we go through everything together.  In my cohort there were between 12 and 14.  We gained and lost a few people along the way. We were so close to each other.  That was so amazing!  Especially during student teaching when we were all incredibly stressed out.  Just to be able to call up your friends in the same program as you, and discuss exactly what was going on, and be there for each other emotionally in that way.  I mean, the people in my major were some of my best friends in college.
