All teacher education candidates, both undergraduate and graduate, enrolled in a Teacher Education program must attend an orientation session that provides an overview of expectations, preparing for field experiences and student teaching, and information about teacher certification through the New York State Department of Education.
At least three sessions are offered during each academic semester and candidates must RSVP for the session they are attending. Individual sessions are not held due to the number of candidates enrolled in teacher education programs.
After attending the orientation, the candidate will receive a follow-up email with the presentation and any next steps for progressing into the next stage of preparing for Field Experience placements. At anytime, if a candidate has a question or needs clarification, they may reach out to the Center for School Partnerships and Teacher Certification by emailing email@example.com.
