Thank you for your interest in becoming a Cooperating Teacher. Cooperating teachers are vital to the success of our students during their student teaching experience. The first step to sponsoring a student teacher is to notify your principal. The placement of student teachers starts with the Office of Clinical Studies and the individual school district human resources.
Once you have been notified that you will be sponsoring a student teacher, you will receive information about a required on-line training session. This session guides each cooperating teacher (clinical educator) through the Evaluation Rubric and Evaluation forms. The English Education department will host a meeting in the fall semester for cooperating teachers, student teachers, and clinical supervisor/s from the University of Delaware to review requirements and expectations.
