In preparing and planning for the student-teaching experience, we ponder the following questions: Is our student-teaching placement process intentional? Does our placement process have purpose?

Research shows that the student-teaching experience is one of the most important aspects of new teacher preparation (Bastian & Patterson, 2018). 30-40% of student-teachers are hired in the district they student-taught in, and 15% of student-teachers will teach in the same school at which they student-taught (Goldhaber et al., 2018). It is incumbent upon Personnel Departments to ensure intentionality in both the placement process and overall student-teaching experience.

In this session, we will share the SBCUSD and RUSD process for student-teacher placement, which sets the student and mentor teacher up for great success in the preservice teaching experience.

We are confident that we have created not only a strong student-teacher placement process but an overall student-teaching experience that will help to prepare high-quality teachers for the profession.
