Teach • Lead • Mentor • Partner

ISU is seeking highly-effective teacher leaders to partner in the preparation of tomorrow’s professional educators.

Teachers have the opportunity to have a powerful impact, not only on the learners in their classrooms, but also on the emerging professionals who are completing their clinical experience.

Let’s get the conversation started. Let us know if you would like to partner with the College of Education to share your extensive knowledge and expertise with our eager teacher education candidates. You will have the opportunity to extend your influence in and beyond the classroom, and to create a dynamic partnership with the College of Education.

For information about the Student Teaching Internship, and roles and responsibilities of cooperating professionals, please refer to the Educator Preparation Clinical Practice Handbook.

“Of all the approaches available to educators to promote teacher learning, the most powerful (and embedded in virtually all others) is that of professional conversations.” Charlotte Danielson
