University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Teacher Education Program
The Student Teaching Application must be submitted during the semester prior to student teaching. Students must be fully admitted to the Certification Program, which means passing all basic skills requirements and having a 3.0 GPA.
Student teaching placements are arranged the semester before student teaching is done. For example, if you plan to student teach during the fall semester, your application for student teaching will be due in early March; for spring semester student teaching, applications will be due in early October. Jody Randolph will meet with students who are ready for student teaching to explain the application process.
There are a couple of things that can be done in advance of turning in an application:
A mandatory orientation meeting is held before student teaching begins. For the fall semester, the meeting is in August. For the spring semester, the meeting is in December. Cooperating teachers and the University supervisors are also invited to this meeting.

"The support offered to me through the Education Department at Pitt-Bradford was amazing . . . The entire Program was extremely beneficial in preparing me for my career. All of my classes and all of my professors offered me something that I took with me into my job, and I'm very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend such a great university."
