Student teaching is the culmination of the educational preparation process. It is where students have the opportunity to utilize the knowledge and skills gained through coursework at Medaille College. This exciting opportunity allows students the ability to learn through a hands-on experience with the support and mentorship of classroom associate teachers and a college supervisor.
Medaille College student teachers participate in two, full-time eight week student teaching placements. Student teaching requirements, policies, and procedures are outlined in the Student Teaching Handbook.
