Final Field Experience Handbook

Welcome to the UTeach Final Field Experience

This is an exciting time when candidates get a chance to put into practice all skills learned throughout the UTeach Natural Sciences Program in an intensive teaching experience.  This is a critical, challenging, and rewarding experience for all participants.  It is a time for reflection and professional growth for the UTeach candidates as well as for mentors and cooperating teachers.  The communication between mentor teachers, cooperating teachers, field observers, and university faculty is a critical piece in supporting and guiding the candidate through a successful Final Field Experience.

It is a pleasure to work with all candidates who have reached this final stage in their pursuit of a teaching certificate.  With open communication, open minds, and attentive spirits, this experience will help candidates grow professionally as they transition into their careers and post-graduation opportunities.
