Experiential Learning

Field Experience

As a certification student, you’ll complete two field experience placements and 7 or 14 weeks of student teaching in local school districts, including the Allentown School District, Parkland Area School District and East Penn School District. During that time, you’ll take on full classroom responsibilities under the mentorship of a practicing, certified teacher.

While you’re inspiring and empowering students in the classroom, our career development practicum course will impart key job-search skills like resume building and mock interviews with working teachers and administrators.

Pre-Service Mentoring & Observation

Hands-on experiences and personalized attention are embedded in all our programs. In addition to fieldwork, weekly observations and ongoing mentor feedback are designed to maximize your growth and prepare you for success in the classroom.
