Course Overview

It’s not uncommon to hear educators talk about the “it factor” when teaching. Most teachers will tell you it was a hands-on experience, not their teacher prep program, that provided them with the most useful lessons for successful teaching.

What You'll Learn

The component that often gets overlooked is the role of the Cooperating Teacher. Just like teaching, there is also an “it factor” to being a successful mentor to an aspiring teacher. This course was designed to help you determine if the mentorship of a student teacher is right for you and to provide you with the best tools for success in your role as a mentor to a student teacher. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to hear horror stories of teachers’ student teaching experience. At UNM, we want to ensure every pairing of Cooperating Teacher and Student Teacher is a positive experience for both parties.
