Over the years, the importance of supervised field experiences
as an integral part of any teacher education program has been one
of the constants recommended in research. It is this clinical
experience that allows interns to connect the theory taught in the
university classroom with practice in the profession. A clearly
planned sequence of steps toward building teaching competencies
characterizes the Saint Leo University Education Program.
The success of the program depends on the continued willingness
of experienced professionals to allow interns the opportunity to
hone their skills in local schools and classrooms. The faculty of
Saint Leo offers special thanks to all cooperating teachers for
their dedication and hard work!
