"Throughout my time in the College of Education, I enjoyed the variety of opportunities available. I was able to utilize this knowledge and take risks trying new activities during my field experiences. The extended practicum gave me the skills to feel confident both as a substitute teacher and in my own classroom. Being involved in Peer Mentoring also created an opportunity for me to build connections with other students, teacher candidates, and staff."

—Nicole, Bachelor of Education (secondary) '23

 

"My field experiences greatly contributed to my professional growth. They taught me the importance of approaching new situations with an open mind and heart, taking risks, and engaging in critical thinking about the learning process. The most rewarding aspect of my field experience was establishing positive relationships with students, staff, and families."
