Student Teaching Information & Application
Student teaching is completed during the senior year. Each student spends a full semester in the classroom with an in-service teacher. Placements are made through the college of Education. Most students remain in the district, but there are opportunities abroad !
Prior to the student teaching experience, students must pass the New Mexico Teacher Assessment - (NMTA) content knowledge exam.
A required pre meet session takes place the semester before student teaching begins. Information shared at this meeting includes: tentative schedule for student teaching, basic lesson plan format and reflection process, substitute teaching policy, explaination of TRIAD meetings and the cooperating teacher handbook. This is a mandatory meeting.
Following are some documents that are very important to the student teaching experience.
