Internship for specific teaching fields. Professionalism is critical to a teacher’s success. There are four key components to showing professional responsibility: (1) reflecting on lessons and knowing where improvements can be made, (2) maintaining accurate records and submitting tasks/ reports / assignments on time (3) communicating clearly and professionally with parents, colleagues, and teachers, and (4) contributing to the school, the district, and in coursework through professional relationships, service and participation in projects. Students will participate in activities, seminars, and discussions related to these four components. Evidence of professional growth is documented by personal dispositions, assessment commentary, attendance, reflections, and feedback from the mentor teacher and university supervisor.
