mentors, and are an integral part of all education courses leading up to
student teaching. Activities include, but are not limited to,
observing, tutoring, lesson planning, and developing
instructional materials. Field experiences may take place in public or
non-public schools, or in community agencies approved by University

The student teaching semester is an extremely significant period in the teacher preparation program. It represents both an end to undergraduate education and a beginning to the wonderful and challenging career of teaching. It is both a requirement for certification, and an opportunity to prove that the teacher candidate deserves to belong to the learning community of the teaching profession. It is the responsibility and mission of the Saint Francis University Education Department to ensure that all teacher candidates have the opportunity to gain experiences that allow them to practice, develop and demonstrate competencies in their certification area. Program candidates should be provided with a broad set of meaningful interactions with Pre-K-12 students and professional staff, as well as willing and qualified site mentors.
The experience requires several other professionals: cooperating teachers, university supervisors, and building principals, as well as university and district administrators. Student Teaching Goals
