Teacher candidates in all programs are required to complete one semester of student teaching. Student teaching is a full-time job, in which the teacher candidate is expected to join the cooperating school's faculty as an adjunct professional, assuming teaching responsibilities, including attendance at meetings and adherence to the school's calendar including in-school hours.
In order to participate in student teaching, all candidates are required to attend the student teaching application meeting held one year prior to the semester in which they plan to student teach. Applications are due within one month of the meeting. Resumes and personal sketches are due the same semester as the application.
The Office of Field Experiences makes all arrangements for student teaching placements, based upon program requirements and the availability of sites within a 50-mile radius of Geneseo. Some out-of-area placements are available with partner school districts; these require a separate application submitted with the student teaching application.
