Spring Placement Information

We are currently working on placements for ALL phases of the multiple subject and SPED programs, and the initial placements for single subject. You will receive your placement information by January 24 - 27, 2017.

If you are a single subject candidate entering your final phase of field work, all placements are confirmed by each academic department. The first day of single subject final student teaching should be the first day the district is back; however, sometimes that is not possible, so you will start as soon as a placement is confirmed.

If you have been hired full time as a teacher of record with your own classroom please contact the Field Placement office IMMEDIATELY.

General Teacher Candidate Resources

Role Expectations of Teacher Candidates

Detailed expectations are outlined in the syllabi and other sections of the handbook; however, all Teacher Candidates are expected to abide by the following general expectations:

  1. Attend sessions and complete reflections for seminars at the beginning of the semester as well as meetings with University Supervisors and/or Cooperating Teachers.
  2. Maintain confidentiality of students, parents, and school site staff at all times.
  3. Model professional and ethical behavior, including but not limited to punctuality, regular attendance, and appropriate dress (neat, clean, and modest).
  4. Notify the school, Cooperating Teacher, and University Supervisor in the case of an absence.
  5. Observe the Cooperating Teacher model methods and strategies for effective teaching.
  6. Become familiar with classroom management strategies and procedures used by the Cooperating Teacher and the School Site.
  7. Learn and abide by all applicable school rules and regulations.
  8. Develop lesson plans and have them approved by the University Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher before each lesson is taught.

Attendance Policy

Teacher Candidates are expected to be in their placements during scheduled days, arrive at the school on time, and remain at the school for the full-designated period.

Teacher Candidates will be required to make-up ALL absences by the last day of finals week. Supervisors are not permitted to make visits after the last day of instruction. Therefore, all observations, paperwork, and other course requirements must be completed by the last day of instruction regardless of the need to make up days.  All make up days must be made in agreement with the supervisor and school site partner, and any make up days must be confirmed by the school site partner.

If a Teacher Candidate must be absent due to emergency or illness, he or she must notify the University Supervisor, the school, and the School Site Partner by 7:30 AM on the day of their assigned class time. It may be necessary to have someone bring materials and/or lesson plans to the classroom to be used in the Teacher Candidate’s absence. More than 3 absences may result in a No Credit for the course. Extenuating circumstances must be discussed with the supervisor, Field Placement Coordinator, and Program Coordinator.

Employment Policy

ALL teacher candidates should have received a link to an employment survey in their welcome letters.

If at any time while enrolled in the credential program a teacher candidate is offered or accepts a full-time teaching position with a public school (official teacher of record with your own classroom), you must:

  1. Complete the survey from your welcome letter. If you have lost the link, email the Field Placement office to have another link sent to you.
  2. Email the Field Placements Office ( AND your university supervisor within 48 hours to discuss your options.

Failure to do so may result in a grade of No Credit for the course.
