Student teaching/Internship experiences are arranged in positive classroom settings with well-qualified cooperating teachers within Christian, private, and public schools. Student teachers/Interns are supervised by faculty members from Liberty University. For this reason, student teaching/internship may not be completed at another institution and transferred to Liberty University. Also, student teaching/internship credit will not be awarded for non-certified classroom employment.
Student teaching/Internship should be approached with a great deal of respect for the responsibilities involved and should be regarded as an important experience. During student teaching/internship, the student teacher/intern will assume an important role of responsibilities and obligations to the school and the students. It is imperative that student teachers/interns plan to arrange personal schedules to allow proper attention to be given to student teaching responsibilities and those activities associated with outside preparation. For these reasons, extracurricular activities and extensive social commitments are highly discouraged.
The deadlines for student teaching/internship are very important in order to allow time for the Field Offices to coordinate details with possible school placements. In some cases, schools may have additional paperwork or processes that must be followed, which can extend the placement confirmation window. Thank you for understanding and for complying with these important deadlines.
