Over the course of the program, you will engage in clinical field experiences at elementary schools. This is also known as working "in the field" or fieldwork. Semesters one through five of the teaching program involve more observational fieldwork. And in your final semester, you will be student teaching in a K-9 classroom.
A background check is required to observe and teach in a classroom. Students need to have a cooperating teacher in a regular school. This supervising teacher needs a valid teaching license with at least three years of experience and has been in their current school for a year. We help you find the perfect fit for your student teaching.
