89 Students Practicing Teaching Skills

Some 89 UW-River Falls education students are practicing their teaching skills this spring in 36 cooperating area school districts as student teachers and interns.

UW-RF faculty and experienced teachers from the cooperating schools supervise the student teachers and interns. 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 responsibility than student teachers.
