Student Teaching

Our graduates are prized hires throughout the region and beyond. One reason? School districts know TCNJ-prepared teachers have the professional experience to lead classrooms from day one. We build extensive fieldwork into every program, beginning with classroom observation and culminating in full-time student teaching. The Office of Support for Teacher Education Programs (STEP) works with students individually, arranging placements at partner districts within 35 miles of campus.
