UW-RF Education Studentst Practice Teaching Skills

More than 120 UW-River Falls education students are practicing their teaching skills this fall in 49 cooperating Wisconsin and Minnesota school districts and preschools as student teachers and interns.

Experienced teachers from the cooperating schools supervise the student teachers and interns. Students are also visited and supervised by UW-RF faculty.

Student teachers receive University credit for their work, which usually continues for one academic semester. Interns receive both credit and salary, are on contract with cooperating schools and assume greater responsibilities than student teachers.

•Kristen Baregi, student teaching grade 2 at Phalen Park Elementary School in St. Paul, Minn., from Sept. 5 to Nov. 9.
