Fred Hamel, an associate professor in the School of Education, says he’s been especially interested lately in school-university partnerships and mentoring practices between student teachers and master teachers in the classroom. A Seattle native and English/language arts teacher in both urban and suburban high schools for 12 years (and briefly a professional soccer player!) before joining the Puget Sound faculty, Hamel spends a lot of time in Tacoma-area schools. “It helps me stay connected to the public-school setting and remain part of a grounded conversation about teaching,” he says. Since 2005 Hamel has been facilitating an exchange with U.S. and Japanese pre-service teachers called the Japan Friendship Exchange. The program has made it possible for more than 15 Puget Sound M.A.T. students to travel to Japan, interact with Japanese education students, take in cultural experiences, and teach in local Japanese schools.
