  • This study reports findings from a longitudinal case study of a teacher through her teacher preparation program, first four years of teaching in an urban middle school and participation in a university school partnership. The participant taught in a district where over 95 percent of the students lived at or below the federal poverty level. The study included over twenty interviews and observations; each focused on gaining insight into the experiences the led to her retention in an urban district. The purpose of the research was to provide a grounded view of the participant's experiences to inform research on urban teacher preparation and retention. The results suggest that the university school partnership contributed to the participant's commitment and retention as an urban educator.
