The Immokalee student teaching experience takes place during the spring semester. Students will complete eight weeks of student teaching in a Michigan school and then complete the remainder of their student teaching in Florida.
This is an excellent opportunity for student teachers to experience teaching in a diverse setting yet still remain in the United States. The mostly Mexican-American student body is very poor. Spanish is the first language of most students, and though many are migrants, they are proud of their schools and very appreciative of receiving a quality education. This experience will provide an excellent foundation for teaching ALL students. It provides the opportunity to engage fully with the community and the various cultures in Immokalee.
Two Applications are required
- TEPD Student Teaching Application - Completed Online
