Welcome, Cooperating Teachers!

Your willingness to open your classroom to our institution and our students attests to your commitment to the teaching profession and underscores the seriousness with which you assume your role as a mentor and teacher educator. The learning-to-teach process is complex and demanding; deep learning on the part of student teachers depends on the rich opportunities you can provide them within your classroom to experiment, practice, apply, create, revise and question.

This website contains resources that are designed to provide you some suggestions, guidelines and basic information that we trust will support the important work you do with our students.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact Lisa Kruger, Director of Teacher Education, lisa.kruger@gse.rutgers.edu .
