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.

SUTEC has a limited number of two-bedroom apartments in the Parkchester, Bronx, New York apartment complex.

SUTEC/Parkchester housing applications, which require submission of a commitment deposit, are accepted on a “first come first served” basis.
