School-Based Teacher Educators

School-based Teacher Educators (SBTE) teachers in local school districts who mentor the University’s teacher candidates for field experience or student teaching placements. Please review the curriculum for our Adolescence Inclusive Generalist or our Childhood Inclusive students for expectations based on their prior experience if you are an SBTE.
