Cooperating Teachers

Thank you for supporting our teacher candidates! 

The UMD Office of Field Experiences values the expertise of our cooperating teachers to mentor candidates in the field. Cooperating teachers work in tandem with UMD supervisors to ensure student teaching candidates use best practices and dispositions in elementary, special education, early childhood, and secondary content classrooms. Cooperating teachers evaluate their student teachers and support them in completing all student teaching requirements. 

For more information, please see the Student Teaching Handbook.

UMD Student Teaching Evaluations

Student Teaching Midpoint and Final Evaluations will be completed in Tk20 (Supervisors, Cooperating Teachers, and Student Teachers complete and discuss).
