Opportunities for Experience


There’s no substitute for getting in the classroom and observing the techniques of successful teachers and/or practicing what you’ve learned in the classroom. That’s why your program will include extensive practicum experience. All candidates for teacher licensure are required to do a semester-long internship, teaching in the subject area of their endorsement.

You’ll gain invaluable experience as you observe different teaching styles and gain understanding of different learning styles of students. You’ll develop the skills you need to become an effective teacher, including:

  • acquiring organizational and planning skills
  • honing your leadership skills
  • developing collaborative and consultative skills
  • learning to conceptualize
  • using current technology for professional presentations and as a teaching tool
