DETROIT, Feb. 26, 2013 – Marygrove College today announced the addition of an exciting new complement of continuing education graduate recertification courses for teachers in cooperation with Learner’s Edge, Inc.

The partnership promises to provide interesting, affordable, applicable and rigorous courses for classroom teachers, school administrators, school counselors, speech therapists, school nurses and other education professionals. These courses are designed to expand the knowledge base of professionals, enhance classroom instruction and ultimately increase student achievement, which is a foundational goal shared by both Marygrove and LEI.

“In this increasingly competitive climate for teachers, it is important to offer courses that keep teachers on top of their game,” said Jo Ann Cusmano, Executive Director, Continuing Education and Career Enhancement at Marygrove. “We are very pleased to expand our offerings with quality courses in collaboration with Learner’s Edge.”

In cooperation with its academic partners, LEI has been devoted to helping teachers reach the highest level of success in their classrooms and their careers since 2002.
