Student Teaching
Central Michigan University is proud of its Teacher Education program and the unique field experiences that are available for the development of future educators. 

The Student Teaching experience is the final of three field components in the teacher education program. Each education student will be partnered with a PK-12 classroom teacher in a local school for a ten week, thirty-classroom hour commitment. The student teaching field experience requires a 16-week field experience in a Pre-K through 12th grade setting. This placement is dependent on the type of teacher certification and endorsements each individual teacher education student is pursuing.

Each prospective student teacher will be assigned to one of the nine student teaching centers in Michigan, as well as be assigned to a university coordinator. Students can also elect to participate in one of the many global experiences available to CMU students. These are excellent opportunities for student teachers to experience teaching in a diverse setting.

CMU is an active participant in the annual Michigan Association of Teacher Educators (MATE) Michigan Student Teacher-of-the-Year program; and TEPD is pleased to note that CMU student teachers have won the award in three of the last five years.
