Office of Field Experience
As you enter into your practicum experiences in the field,
beginning with course- based observations and culminating with student
teaching, we would like
to welcome and congratulate you on your decision
to become future educators.
Student teaching is a challenging and dynamic process. You and
your students will learn together as you become immersed in the daily life and
culture of your school and its community. You will encounter the school’s
curriculum, a source of information that is continually modified and adapted and revitalized by emerging theory, practice and research.
You will work in the “real” world while reflecting on how to move toward the goal of creating your
You will recognize that
through your experience, your students, their families and your colleagues all have relevant and important knowledge to
contribute to the learning process. All participants in the educational process
must acknowledge their own uncertainty, their own beliefs, practices, thoughts
and feelings, and use these as a source of
learning. Finally, we hope you will find the “key” to a successful school. In
order for schools to succeed, teachers, students and families must build an educated community rooted in reality and firmly committed to
the education of all its children.
We are here to help you with this important step in your
professional development. Whenever you have questions, please contact the
Office of Student Teaching & Field Experiences.
