Student Teacher Handbook & Information

Student Teaching is considered the culmination of a candidate’s preparation to become a teacher. In an accredited public or private school, under the supervision of an experienced, well-qualified, certified teacher, the candidate will have the opportunity to turn theory into practice. With the assistance of the Cooperating Teacher and the College Supervisor, the Student Teacher will have the opportunity to design and teach lessons, assess student learning, manage a classroom, and assume all the responsibilities of a full-time, experienced teacher.
