​Office of Field Experiences: Cooperating Teachers

Cooperating Teacher

Cooperating teachers play a vital role in the development of future teachers. They are an integral part of the Student Teaching Triad (along with the student teacher and university supervisor). The Handbook for Student Teaching (updated Fall 2021) provides guidelines for this collaboration.

The Office of Field Experiences extends our gratitude for the contribution of cooperating teachers and will express it with our support in every possible way.
