During the next two years, University of Wisconsin-Stout will launch Arts Integration Menomonie to support teacher candidates and retain early career teachers in the Menomonie school district.

“Through thriving partnerships, we can make the most of each other’s strengths and thereby better serve our teachers and their students,” said Tami Weiss, director of the art education undergraduate program and assistant professor of art education at UW Stout.

One of AIM’s defined initiatives is Co-teaching In and Through the Arts — CITA — involving student-teachers, teachers and teaching-artists.
