Pre-service Teaching Experiences

Pre-service teaching experiences and student teaching are frequently cited in teacher education literature as the single component of having the highest impact on future teaching behaviors of teacher candidates. Prospective employers consider it the most critical element of teacher education programs.

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Education and Professional Studies prides itself in the preparation of our students with the following goals:

Carefully selected experiences which...

  • focus on content specific placements.
  • focus on a wide variety of developmental levels.
  • provide a balance of rural, urban and suburban settings.
  • provide opportunities to work with advanced teaching technology.
  • provide highly dedicated, accomplished and competent Pre-K-12th grade mentor teachers.
  • provide classroom connections with university course work.
