ROGERSVILLE — Tusculum University is partnering with the Hawkins County and Greene County school systems to support teaching assistants as they pursue a license to teach a high school subject in special education.

The Tusculum College of Education recently earned two $100,000 Grow Your Own grants from the Tennessee Department of Education, which will enable Tusculum to cover the cost for tuition, books and fees for 16 master’s degree students. These students will simultaneously work for either the Greene County or Hawkins County school system as a teaching assistant.
