Preparing a new teacher is a collaborative effort. University faculty, clinical supervisors, mentor teachers, and school leaders work together to create positive opportunities for the meaningful translation of theory to practice. Our shared goal is to prepare teachers dedicated to the well-being, development, and learning of all children.

Here at Seton Hall we are proud of the rich, diverse, and extensive field and clinical experiences that we require of all those preparing to teach. Teacher candidates are actively engaged in content, methods courses, and clinical experiences beginning in sophomore year through senior year. These experiences provide opportunities to observe and apply data driven decision making to enhance student learning.

This blog highlights new and on-going clinical partnerships in teacher preparation. We are celebrating our 15th anniversary as a PDS partner with the Cranford School District. Please check out that tab to learn more about our engaged and expanding work. This year marks the introduction of a new clinical partnership, the Far Hills Country Day School, with nineteen students participating in an on-site methods course. We are expanding our work with several schools in Orange and are particularly proud of our summer science methods course at Forest Street School.
