The Cannon-Clary College of Education welcomes you to the supervised teaching experience. We are proud of our cooperating schools, our cooperating teachers, and the experiences that are provided for you in the Teacher Education Program. But most of all we are proud of you and your accomplishments. Supervised teaching is one of the most important and profitable experiences in your professional preparation. It is a time for demonstrating the skills that you have gained during your time here on campus; but most importantly, it is the time when you begin the process of moving from candidate status to professional educator. This guided experience is planned for your optimal professional growth.
Supervised teaching lasts 18 weeks and requires a full time commitment from the candidate. To be admitted to the supervised teaching semester, a teacher candidate must meet certain requirements.
