Mentor Teacher Program

Beginning this Fall 2021 semester our fieldwork is going back to all in-person instruction! We are excited that our NSED students will now be able to return to the classroom. This means we need Mentor Teachers to help our NSED students! Our students are required to have 20-30 hours of fieldwork experience in some of our courses to not only get hands-on experience working in a classroom but to learn from Mentor Teachers and get feedback on how to better improve their teaching skills. Fall 2021 Mentor Teacher Applications are NOW OPEN!
