How do I know if I'm eligible to student teach?
All coursework, GPA, dispositional standards, and other criteria as specified by program area and college need to be successfully met prior to the final student teaching semester. See faculty advisors and/or academic advisors in the Vacca Office of Student Services, 304 White Hall, for clarification.
Check our web site, bulletin boards in White Hall and the undergrad listserv for the date of your mandatory student teaching meeting's. If you have been tentatively approved by your academic advisor, you must attend a student teaching meeting in order to be assigned a student teaching placement.
At the meeting you will receive the required Teacher Candidate Placement Application forms, student teaching card and valuable information about the placement process.
Candidates are required to either download or purchase Collaboration in Teacher Education, the handbook for student teaching. This handbook outlines the student teaching process, student teaching responsibilities, policies, and assessment materials. Early Childhood majors must download the Early Childhood version online.
