Field Placement Office

Student Teaching

To be eligible for New York State certification, all candidates registered in a teacher education program are required to student teach and/or complete an internship under a college supervisor who works cooperatively with a cooperating teacher to assist candidates in developing the needed teaching skills, knowledge, and dispositions.  The Field Placement Office works closely with Curriculum & Instruction, the Technology Education, and the Vocational Teacher Preparation departments to arrange student teaching placements for all teacher candidates.  The configuration and placement procedures for student teaching placements vary depending upon your program.
