Old Main Building Room 115
Information for student teaching is available in the Office of Student Teaching in the Old Main Building Room 115 and on this Web site. Student teaching applications must be filed by the end of the semester a year prior to the anticipated semester one will student teach (e.g. applications for student teaching in fall 2010 are due by the end of the semester of fall 2009). The application is now online in my.newpaltz.edu under "My.Personal Records." If you do not see a link for "My.Student Teaching App.", please contact the Office of Student Teaching. Applications will NOT be accepted beyond the deadline. The Student Teaching Office or the academic department will register students for student teaching once they have received clearance from the Student Health Center.
Please contact the Office of Student Teaching if you have questions. We're open from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. (Summer Hours: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.) Monday through Friday.
Student Teaching is the capstone experience for all undergraduate elementary and secondary candidates seeking a bachelor's degree and graduate students seeking the MAT or MST degree. It is a full-time commitment extending for an entire semester with placements in two different settings. As such, the School of Education requires that all required coursework is completed BEFORE the capstone experience begins, and it restricts candidates from taking any other course(s) while registered for student teaching except the co-requisite fieldwork and student teaching seminar that are components of some programs.
