Overview

NOTE: WE ARE AN "EARLY START" BLOCK. THIS MEANS WE BEGIN THE SCHOOL YEAR IN MID-AUGUST.

The faculty and staff at Lauderbach Elementary welcomes the student teachers into the school community, helping to prepare them to be an active and valuable part of a school faculty. Our partnership is one of “reciprocal professional development. Our student teachers support the Lauderbach school community and the faculty and staff help us grow exemplary novice teachers.

Tutoring

Student Teachers participate in an after-school tutoring program designed to support to emerging readers and writers. Every student teacher will be paired up with a student at Lauderbach Elementary for twice-weekly assessment and instruction. Student Teachers will provide 6 weeks of support in the fall and another 6 weeks of tutoring during the spring semester.

Shared Expertise

The Shared Expertise program invites CVESD teachers to host workshops for student teachers based on their area of expertise. Topics vary from semester to semester but always include standards-based presentations on physical education, visual and performing arts, and movement and music. Recent workshops have also focused on using rubrics, integrating curriculum and classroom management techniques.
