Thank you in advance for joining us as we prepare for this year’s student teaching experience. This meeting/workshop serves as a review and affirmation for some of you and an induction for others into the responsibility of being a cooperating teacher. We will provide an overview of our teacher education program, review the student teaching expectations and Pre-service Teacher Assessment, and set the stage for a successful experience. Your student teacher will also be in attendance so you may find it a nice time to say hello and visit a bit.
We’ll be covering topics in our Student Teaching/Internship Handbook. We encourage you to print this and bring it with you to the meeting.
You will receive a letter in the mail with the agenda as we get closer to the meeting date. Thanks in advance for saving this date for us – we’re looking forward to seeing you here on campus!
