Master Teachers



Professional Development



Traditional student teachers participate in two-semester supervised fieldwork and student teaching experiences, under the supervision of an experienced, multiple subject credentialed Supervising Mentor Teacher (aka. Master Teacher) in a public elementary school.

Student Teaching Requirements

Preparatory Coursework

Traditional student teachers complete their supervised fieldwork and student teaching experiences concurrently with the requisite coursework in the multiple subjects credential program.

Observation Requirements

The observers will complete an Observation Form (NCR) for each of the specified formal observations, and discuss it with the student teacher before distributing the copies as noted on the form. Informal observations and post-observation conferences should be conducted throughout both semesters as appropriate.

Expected Competencies


Formal evaluation of Traditional student teachers will be conducted twice during each semester of student teaching--midterm and final—by both the University Supervisor and the Supervising Mentor Teacher (aka. Master Teacher), using the department’s Classroom Teaching Profile (CTP), which is available ONLINE. Please consult the CTP forms for detailed explanations of minimum passing score requirements for the midterm and the final evaluation of student teaching.

Other Expectations

During the two semesters of student teaching, traditional student teachers are to gain experiences in working with diverse learners, English learners, children with special needs, and emergent and developing readers and writers. In addition, student teachers are also expected to attend IEP meetings, SST meetings, and other assessment and/or professional development meetings shadowing their Supervising Mentor Teachers.
