Elementary Education Field Experiences


With the support of mentor teachers, administrators, and boundary-spanning University faculty, field experiences provide multiple opportunities for teacher candidates to apply educational theory in elementary classrooms.  Prior to student teaching, Elementary Education teacher candidates are required to successfully complete 200 hours of clinical experience.  During Cohort I, teacher candidates will complete 90 hours of clinical experience.  During Cohort II, teacher candidates will complete 114 hours of clinical experience.
