If you think you are ready to student teach in the next 12 months, then you are ready to submit your application for student teaching. If your education program leads to an Indiana teacher license you will need to student teach.
You will need to schedule an appointment one year in advance of when you plan to student teach with Jim Beard, Director of EPIC. The time frame windows for scheduling a student teaching meeting for Fall requests are September through November and for Spring requests are January through March.
Meeting regularly with Jim Beard, Director of EPIC, is critical for you to stay on track for student teaching and graduation.
You will turn your student teaching application into EPIC, Neff Hall, 243. If you have general questions about the student teaching application process or would like to make an appointment.
a. Select school corporations you are interested in having a student teaching placement.*
b. Complete the Student Teaching Application Form and Student Teaching Professional Agreement Form and bring them with you to your student teaching appointment
3. After your student teaching appointment fill out the correct criminal history form for the district you have selected. You will be told which criminal history form to fill out during your student teaching meeting.
*If choosing Northwest or Southwest Allen County Schools you must have an overall GPA of 3.0. If you select East Noble, MSD Bluffton-Harrison, NACS or SACS you will need to submit an unofficial transcript from KT 107 (NOT OASIS) with your application.
Note: Many of you have contacts with several districts and often field placement teachers will express a desire to have you as their student teacher. The current application procedure requires that the request for a student teaching placement starts with Jim Beard. Please refrain from creating any arrangements with a school district or teacher for a student teaching placement.
