Student Teaching Information and Application

Student teaching is completed during the senior year. Each student spends a full semester in the classroom with an in-service teacher. Placements are made through the college of Education. Most students remain in the district, but there are opportunities abroad!

Prior to the student teaching experience, students must pass the NES content assessment for their program area: Early Childhood (ECED), Elementary Education (ELED), Secondary Education (SED), and Special Education (SPED).

A required pre meet session takes place the semester before student teaching begins. Information shared at this meeting includes: tentative schedule for student teaching, basic lesson plan format and reflection process, substitute teaching policy, explanation of TRIAD meetings and the cooperating teacher handbook. This is a mandatory meeting.

Application deadlines for Student Teaching are one year prior to Student Teaching:  October 9th for the Fall and March 9th for the Spring.  Applications must be submitted to the College of Education TEP Advising Office, O’Donnell Hall, Room 121.
