17 p. 

This paper describes aspects of a program at Sammons Elementary School (Houston, Texas) designed to create a learning community that includes preservice teacher education students, practicing teachers, university faculty, and Sammons students and parents. The school has been designated as an Urban Professional Development Site for the Sam Houston State University Center for Professional Development (SHCPD). The site receives federal Title VII Transitional Bilingual Education funds. These funds help to support the community education focus of the program, which includes a major effort to engage parents of linguistically diverse students in encouraging and supporting their children's learning environment. University and school personnel collaborate on two major goals: improving student performance and preparing preservice students for authentic teaching. The paper includes an overview of several elements of the preservice program: curriculum, technology-based activities, field experience, bilingual and multicultural education. The Saturday School at Sammons (SSS), a 10-week Saturday program for parents and children, is the central component of the overall program's parent support services. Parents receive English as a Second Language classes and computer training. In addition to Sam Houston University, Texas A&M University is a partner in SSS, and preservice teachers and university professors from both institutions plan and prepare SSS lessons.
