Teacher Candidate Internship Evaluations

Teaching is a rewarding yet demanding profession. The teacher internship is the capstone feld experience of your program. Professionally, teacher candidates should demonstrate their commitment to a successful internship experience. This commitment is reflected by the teacher candidate's efforts in three areas that comprise: Professional Disposition, Efective Skills and Instruction, and Knowledge of the Specific Content Area.
