Field Experiences

Your program will include a set of carefully designed field experiences.

Beginning early in your program, you will have opportunities to observe local public school classrooms. These focused visits help you learn about the roles and responsibilities of teachers and encourage you to evaluate your choice of teaching as a career.

As a junior, you will be actively involved in the classroom as you design and implement your own instructional plans, assess your learners, and assist the classroom teacher with administrative tasks.

Your senior year culminates with an entire professional semester that includes a full-time 12-week student teaching experience. University supervisors and experienced classroom teachers work with you to develop your problem-solving and decision-making abilities in a public school classroom.
