“The most valuable thing I gained from my student teaching experience was confidence as a teacher. I learned my style of interacting with individual students as well as large groups of students and gained many new teaching strategies. I also realized during my student teaching time that it is invaluable to work so closely with an experienced professional in the field; the cooperating teacher becomes a mentor and colleague and remains an important contact even after the semester is over.”
