UW-RF Education Students Practice Teaching Skills

October 2, 1998


More than 86 UW-River Falls education students are practicing their teaching skills this fall in 37 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 continues for one academic semester. Interns receive both credit and salary, are on contract with cooperating schools and assume greater responsibilities than student teachers.

Sara Bartscher, student teaching English at Fairmont (Minn.) middle and senior high schools.

Frances Erhart, student teaching preschool at Ames Preschool in River Falls from Aug. 31 to Oct. 23 and student teaching kindergarten at Hayden Heights Elementary School in St. Paul, Minn. from Nov. 2 to Dec. 4.
