BEST WISHES student teachers

With the new semester, the latest group of student teachers have been matched with mentor teachers in area partner-schools.  Student teaching is designed to allow our candidates to practice and refine their teaching skills through full-time classroom experience. Student teachers work closely with college supervisors and experienced educators to learn how to promote student learning. Student teachers - you are ready to shine!
Special thanks to our host/cooperating teachers, supervisors, and Melissa Stewart, who coordinates our field placements.
