How does the Student Teaching Program work?

Students who elect to pursue licensure either in Elementary or Secondary studies apply to the Professional Semester offered each fall semester, and upon acceptance, complete EDST 0410, the student teaching seminar, and EDST 0405-0407, the student teaching practicum in a local school. Students may elect to complete the professional semester either as seniors, or post graduation in a ninth semester. Satisfactory review of the professional semester by the Professional Semester Review Committee and of the student's teacher licensure portfolio result in recommendation for initial licensure for teaching in Vermont, reciprocated by 48 states.
