Supporting York College Education Students

Students in a York College education degree program complete 190 hours of Field Experience work before embarking on their final semester — the Professional Semester, when seniors complete Student Teaching or an alternate program.

The Student Teaching experience provides the opportunity for education majors to put their knowledge and skills into practice in a real-world school environment. Cooperating Teachers invite these students into their classrooms, where students can learn more about the teacher's strategies and day-to-day work. As Student Teachers progress through their semester, they will be assigned a growing level of responsibility until they are prepared to manage a full day of classwork. Student Teachers will spend a minimum of two weeks maintaining full responsibility for the classroom — with four weeks requested for full-semester placements.

Cooperating Teachers will receive a stipend in appreciation of the time and effort they spend supporting York College education students.
