Field Experiences

The purpose of field experiences in the teacher preparation program is to allow teacher candidates to observe and interact with teachers, students, principals, and other supporting personnel at all public and private schools who partner with us, as well as our Professional Development Schools. Teacher candidates enrolled in our teacher preparation program gain extensive knowledge and experience through structured field experience observations. Those observations and experiences help a candidate intentionally and meaningfully transition from learning about educational theory to applying it in the classroom.

All of our block courses in the undergraduate teacher education programs for initial teacher certification requires at least ten hours or more of field experience outside of class time
