As a teacher, you provide a valuable service by accepting a student teacher in your classroom!  We are grateful for the many teachers who are willing to devote the time and effort needed to encourage and mentor our teacher education students as they prepare for the teaching profession.

Please explore the expandable content below for access to the necessary forms for assessing the student teacher’s progress and receiving compensation for your effort, general information on procedures, and answers to frequently asked questions.
