Student Teaching

Student teaching is the final activity before teacher candidates earn their degree and license. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction defines student teaching as classroom practice through observation, participation, and actual teaching practice under the direction of a college or university supervisor of teacher candidates and a cooperating teacher as part of the professional education program offered by an institution.

 

To prepare for this, all teacher candidates should be working with their advisors and program coordinators to meet all requirements on time.

 

Teacher Candidates can also apply for Internships while student teaching. Interns earn a small stipend and teach up to 50% of their day as a certified teacher would.
