Student Teaching

As all students in the School of Education are aware, the final, culminating undergraduate experience is student teaching. For many, the idea of student teaching can be a source of both anxiety and excitement, especially as senior year draws closer. This week's discussion is geared toward our past and current student teachers, who we ask to give an overview of what it is like to be in the classroom full time.

For student teachers:
What is it like to run your own classroom?
Does your past or current student teaching experience match your initial expectations?
How has your student teaching experience benefited (or not benefited!) you as a future educator?

For SOE students who anticipate student teaching:
What do you hope to gain from your student teaching experience?
 Where do you want to student teach? 
What are you most excited about? 
Do you have any concerns about student teaching?

  1. Well lets just say this could be the best time of your senior year or the worst time. Many teachers make you their teacher assisstant and will not let you teach a class while other teachers will give up two of their classes. The kids will be great but make sure you can keep them engaged throughout your entire lesson.
