Early Field Experiences is an opportunity to collaborate with an experienced teacher to gain knowledge of the teaching profession. During this experience you will be placed in a variety of schools and grade levels to help prepare you for student teaching, and your career as a lifelong learner. Your experience can begin as early as your freshman year in your specific content area and will continue until your Student Teaching experience.
My first classroom experience was what assured me that teaching was the profession for me. The 1:1 student interactions were, and will always be, my favorite part of visiting a classroom. Every experience I’ve had since has been structured to further prepare me for student teaching and beyond.
