In August, prior to the senior year, all candidates seeking teacher certification participate in an early teaching experience on a full-time basis. This experience provides an opportunity for direct involvement in the opening of school when classroom routines and procedures are established. Candidates seeking certification are expected to assume some teaching responsibilities.
