TSTT began in the Kingston City School District in 2017-2018 school year.  Fifteen students, at Kingston High School, actively took part in the exploration of the different pathways a career in the field of education can offer. In just three short years, student participation has increased to 63 students taking part in our full circle teacher preparation model.   During the 2019-2020 school year, TSTT expanded into the M. Clifford Middle School with the implementation of the Student Leadership Movement (SLM).  The SLM is designed to not only help 8th graders achieve their potential of becoming leaders within their school and community, but also prepares them to become active TSTT members once they enter into Kingston High School.
