Be on time. (That means be at least 10 minutes early)
Stay late - leave when the cooperating teacher leaves
If you need to miss, contact your cooperating teacher and supervisor
If you miss more than 2 days (including snow days) contact my office as well
If you have a “C” or lower at Midterm, the Director of Field and Clinical will come to meet with you, your cooperating teacher, and university supervisor.
The Director of Field and Clinical may come to observe a lesson depending on the circumstances.
Follow a Code of Ethics
Provide non-discriminatory and professional educational services
Protect the health and safety of all students
Use reasonable disciplinary action in consultation with your cooperating teacher and use building policy
Do NOT falsify or misinterpret records or facts about your qualifications
Do not knowingly make false or malicious statements about students or colleagues (including discussions on social networks)
Clean up your social media
Do not friend your students (Amy Hestir Student Protection Act)
Employers WILL look you up
Look yourself and see what you find
Lean down, bend over, reach up
Look around. How are the other teachers of your gender dressed? That is the standard.
Honesty and integrity
Communication (verbal and written)
Interpersonal (relates well to others)
Strong work ethic
Motivation; takes initiative
Professionalism and etiquette
Skills Employers Seek
Use your planning time wisely.
The MoPTA format (or the equivalent of) is to be used until your cooperating teacher and university supervisor agree you are ready to start utilizing a shorter format.
Prepare a lesson plan for every lesson you are responsible for teaching.
Turn in your lesson plans the Friday before they are taught to your cooperating teacher for review. Then submit to your university supervisor.
Do not stick with the textbook lessons. This is your time to shine! Be creative!
If a school asks you to discontinue student teaching in their school, you have the right to an appeal.
Write a formal letter to the Dean of the College of Education.
You will meet with the Dean, Director of Field and Clinical, and the Department Chair who will determine if you can continue in the program.
If you are permitted to continue in the program, you need to reapply for student teaching for the following semester.
Biggest reason for terminating assignments: “Not taking student teaching seriously” and not lesson planning.
Remember: you are a student teacher. You are not a substitute.
If the cooperating teacher cannot be in the building for a day, or for even half a day, the school must pay a substitute to take their place.
This is a legal issue that needs to be taken seriously.
You can be paid for after school activities (i.e. coaching). You are NOT to be paid during the school day while student teaching.
This is available on our Field and Clinical web page
Many of your questions can be addressed there
Mrs. Brandy Hepler, Director
Mrs. Anita Sides, Field and Clinical Technical Assistant
Wishing you the best of luck!
