Requirement

Student Leadership Requirement All students must complete at least one semester of leadership prior to Student Teaching. The leadership requirement can be met in many different ways. Each advisor has a list of opportunities for the upcoming semester and they will be posted on Blackboards. Once a student commits to a particular activity it must be honored and the advisor must sign off upon completion. 

  • Students will receive a Certificate of Achievement, which can be included in their online application to student teaching. Or, students can shoot higher and earn the Leadership Badge.
  • Such students will receive a special digital badge as well as become eligible for various Departmental awards; all of which look very good to potential employers.
  • The Department will provide a variety of options for students, such as serving on committees, attending open house events, and other opportunities and possibilities - for additional information come to the Department of Teacher Education.
