Student Teaching Information
Student teaching is the final semester of all teaching degree programs, and it is a pivotal time in your development as a teacher. Student teaching marks the transition from being a college student to becoming a professional educator. During this semester, you will be fully immersed in the daily work of teaching. You will participate in planning curriculum, delivering instruction, managing the classroom, and assessing student learning. You must abide by all policies and procedures outlined for faculty and staff and you must be mindful that you are a guest in the school. It is a privilege to work this closely with students.
Student teaching is a full-time, 16-week experience. The experience can be rewarding, challenging, and overwhelming – all at the same time. Please do not underestimate the full-time nature of this endeavor. If you attend to all of the duties expected of you, you will work long hours on weekdays and weekends, as well. You must have completed all of the required classes for your program before you student teach. If you hold a part-time job during your professional semester, remember that your first priority must be student teaching. This will be a very busy semester indeed.
Applying for Student Teaching
Your student teaching application is an external document that will be shared with local principals, teachers, and other school officials. It is imperative that you follow the directions closely and meet all published deadlines. It is not possible to accommodate late applications.
There are three steps in the application process: 1.) completing the Tk20 application for student teaching; 2.) completing the paper application, and 3.) submitting your paper application in person to Mrs. Nancy Martin, Coordinator of Student Teaching and Licensure (ED 3124). Your application must show school officials that you are prepared for the professional responsibility of a student teaching placement. Your brief interview with Mrs. Martin will allow us to begin the placement process for you. It is possible that you will also be interviewed by a principal or other school administrator before your student teaching placement is finalized.
1. Tk20 Application
Electronic applications via Tk20 are due by the first Friday of the spring semester, prior to the academic year in which you plan to student teach. Late applications are not accepted. The application is found by logging on to Tk20, clicking the Applications tab at the top of the page, then clicking Create on the left-hand margin. From there you will select the Student Teaching Application for Fall 2013-Spring 2014. You may complete this application on your own, without advisor approval. You may complete this without being admitted to teacher education, as long as you are certain you will be eligible to student teach in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014.
2. Paper Application
Be sure to print and read the directions for the application. Follow the directions carefully, and make sure your application is free from typos or other errors. You must have been admitted to teacher education, have a 2.75 GPA overall and in all teaching areas, and have advisor approval before you can submit your paper application for student teaching.
the Paper Application
Paper applications are submitted to Mrs. Nancy Martin, Coordinator of Student Teaching and Licensure.
