Gabe Hunter-Bernstein is the new GSE school partnership director. This position in the GSE was developed to facilitate partnerships with schools and districts to enable our teacher candidates to have the best possible clinical experiences in K–12 schools.
Hunter-Bernstein has had a close relationship with the GSE since 2003. As the director of education programs at PCC, he partnered with the Portland Teachers Program and the Bilingual Teacher Pathway program, and ran a center for aspiring teacher education students. These programs serve as incubators to GSE graduate education programs.
“Gabe has a solid reputation in the metro area due to his successful initiatives, thoughtful leadership style, and collaborative approach to partnership work,” said the GSE Associate Dean Micki Caskey. “We are delighted that Gabe has joined the GSE!”
Hunter-Bernstein also has a rich background in K–12 where he worked for over 16 years as an elementary teacher before moving into professional development for educators. He received his bachelor’s degree in early childhood/elementary education from Boston University and his master’s degree in curriculum from California State University, Dominguez Hills.
