IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FALL 2014 STUDENT TEACHER CANDIDATES
We have received several inquiries from interested student teacher candidates for the fall 2014 semester. To assure that every student who has an interest in student teaching gets an opportunity to meet the application requirements we have made a few adjustments to the process.

We have scheduled 3 additional STUDENT TEACHING INFORMATION MEETINGS. Prospective student teacher candidates are REQUIRED to attend one of these meetings for their application to be accepted. Candidates already attending one of the information meetings occurring in January do NOT need to attend a meeting.  Please plan to attend if you have not already done so:
      Monday, February 10                     6:00 – 7:00 PM                  Peltz Conference Room
      Tuesday, February 11                     2:00 – 3:00 PM                  Davis Hall, Rm 211
      Wednesday, February 12               12:00 – 1:00 PM                Davis Hall 106

The student teaching information meeting will be about 45 minutes and is for students in all teacher education subject areas.

Candidates must attend an information meeting to schedule a REQUIRED INDIVIDUAL CONSULTATION MEETING. Individual placement/application review appointments will be scheduled at these meetings for the upcoming week. Candidates will be required to submit a copy of their resume, cover letter, and philosophy statement before the individual meeting so that their reviewer can provide feedback.

THE STUDENT TEACHING APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR FIRST CONSIDERATION IS BEING ADJUSTED TO MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17 – MIDNIGHT. Students scheduled for meetings this week effected by weather closings should contact their placement coordinator to reschedule. Please contact:

       Todaroa2@southernct.edu – secondary, art ed, ex science, school health, and media studies
         Decrotap2@southernct.edu – elementary ed, early child, bilingual ed, and collaborative

         Romane3@southernct.edu – collaborative & comprehensive special education

THE FINAL DATE TO SUBMIT A STUDENT TEACHIGN APPLICATION IS FEBRUARY 28.We recommend that candidates complete the application requirements and submit their materials as early as possible. We will begin sending requests for placement the week of February 18th. We recognize that some candidates need more time to determine if they will be eligible for student teaching. As a result, the student teaching application will remain available in Tk20 until February 28, 2014. No student teaching applications will be accepted after this date.

 NOTIFICATIONS TO CANDIDATES REGARDING PLACEMENTS WILL BEGIN ON MAY 1, 2014 THROUGH THE SUMMER UNTIL ALL PLACEMENTS HAVE BEEN DETERMINED.
