Student Teaching in New York City

The SUNY Urban Teacher Education Center’s (SUTEC’s) primary mission is to assist the 17 SUNY campuses that offer teacher preparation programs in the placement of teacher candidates in New York City public schools. These experiences will prepare prospective teachers to become competent and confident professionals in urban, multicultural environments.

SUTEC also facilitates the recruitment of SUNY teacher education graduates for New York City schools and provides an academic center for scholarship and research on urban education.

Each semester begins with a Student Teacher Orientation for all SUNY student teachers in city schools.

While SUTEC does not arrange for housing, The Webster Apartments is one potential option for candidates to consider.

This is an "Out-of-Area Placement" that requires an additional application. At a minimum, the teacher candidate must have a GPA of 3.0 or above and faculty recommendation.
