The Department of Education, NYC, was pleased to announce that 1383 student teachers were registered for the spring 2013. Andre Hayes, Adolescence Education/ English major at the Manhattan campus was chosen as a student teacher placement.
Highlight: Middle School Spring Classroom Apprenticeship (MS-SCA)
MS-SCA places talented new recruits in intensive classroom-embedded training between March and May 2013. MS-SCA apprentices are guided by a rigorously selected Cooperating Teacher for ten weeks of immersion, while gaining greater familiarity with the needs of middle school learners. Apprentices also attend weekly workshops that build upon their teaching skills. This program is intended to position our future educators to be as successful as possible as classroom teachers in our schools next fall.
In addition to the Teaching Fellows who will be participating in MS-SCA this spring, TRQ received 170 applications (a 35% increase) from traditional teacher candidates for this year’s program; 58 finalists were invited to participate as apprentices.
