We truly value our strong community partnerships with nationally renowned school districts. The goal is to make our relationships mutually beneficial — a seamless and valuable collaboration between teacher candidates and cooperating teachers to deliver positive and impactful experiences in the classroom.
Along with academic preparation, field placements foster hands-on experiences in many classroom settings. Several student teaching opportunities include urban partnerships with Milwaukee, Texas and even abroad. These high-quality experiences offer valuable and rich teaching environments for those seeking a diverse perspective.
