Teacher Candidates

The Office of Clinical Experiences places teacher candidates in diverse school settings in order to gain firsthand knowledge of the highly contextualized nature of schooling.  Teacher candidates complete practicum requirements and serve as interns in rural, suburban, and urban settings at various grade levels and courses.  In addition, teacher candidates are placed in schools with student populations representing the racial/ ethnic, socio-economic, and linguistic diversity in our region.

The UMW College of Education is committed to preparing teachers to be successful in multiple school contexts and to supporting all students in our public schools.
