The Office of Field and International Experience provides teacher candidates with real-world experiences in classrooms both close to home and around the globe. Our students are prepared and confident in the classroom because they contribute to the learning experience by co-teaching with mentor teachers.
Our teaching experience includes four levels of intentional field experience. Each level builds on the previous level, and each incorporates our co-teaching model, in which teacher candidates work collaboratively with mentor teachers.
Set yourself apart with a unique opportunity to study away for your student teaching experience. We currently have opportunities for Student Teaching in:
