Student Teaching, Employment, and Coursework
As a general practice, the University discourages students from employment on or off campus during student teaching. Students are also discouraged from taking any classes with the exception of EDUC 456 while student teaching. Supervising teachers in the schools view student teaching as an internship that should demand the total involvement of the beginning teacher. Thus, the student teacher should be free from other responsibilities that might detract or drain energy from teaching. Students who, for any reason, wish to work or take other coursework during the student teaching experience must petition the Teacher Education Committee for permission to do so.
