Teacher See, Teacher Do

Your hands-on experience begins your freshman year as you observe teachers and students in real-world classroom settings. By your junior year, you’ll use these observations to write your very own lesson plans.

Student Teaching

Then, put those lesson plans to good use for the ultimate experience of your elementary education journey–one full semester of student teaching in a local elementary school.
