Placing students in local Arizona schools as well as international sites
Together with UA school site coordinators and the Department of Disability & Psychoeducational Studies, Director of Field Experience Maggie Shafer placed 163 undergraduate student teachers for the spring 2019 semester. This includes three students at Baboquivari Unified School District, three students at Casa Blanca School in Gila River, and 14 students who are planning to student teach internationally in cities like Guanajauto, Mexico, Rosendal, Norway, and the Liang Province in China. Shafer worked closely with Community Liaison Rebecca Zapien to place the 44 students majoring in early childhood education. Other undergraduate students are pursuing their elementary certification, 36 are earning an English as a second language endorsement, 13 are majoring in special education, and 11 are earning a dual language endorsement.
