Enhanced Student Teaching Opportunities

As a prospective teacher studying at Cedar Crest College, you will begin your field experiences in local public schools in the second semester of your first year, and complete 4 field experiences prior to student teaching in the fall or spring semester of the senior year.

As an education major at Cedar Crest, you will:

  • Complete 4 field experiences prior to student teaching—beginning your 2nd semester here.
  • Complete 2 student teaching experiences during your senior year. Explore numerous opportunities to participate in classrooms or other group activities with students.
  • Experience both suburban and urban school settings to give breadth to your experience base.
  • Receive feedback and mentoring on a weekly basis from your faculty supervisor as you complete your 2 student teaching placements.
  • Benefit from the assistance and guidance of faculty members as you search for your first professional position.
