Student Teaching and Field Experience

Student teaching is the capstone component of the teacher education program at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. It is a time when students are guided into challenging new identities as beginning teachers. The quality of the student teaching placement, the professional growth student teachers acquire, and their future attitudes and beliefs about teaching and learning are all greatly influenced by the experience. The following handbooks and forms were designed to guide students and their supporting mentors. Information relating to university policies and guidelines, roles and responsibilities, and specific ideas and activities to enhance the experience are included.
