Student Teacher Time

It’s that time of the year that I get a new practicum student, or “Student Teacher”.

I’ve had many incredible students intern with in the past and it is rewarding to **hope** that I am contributing to their lives and careers in some ways.

My new student teacher this term seems very capable and friendly and I expect that she will do a great job. Since I’ve had quite a few interns, I developed a “expectations” page to give them on the first day. I also have them fill out a “about me” page for my information and to share with my staff, along with a mug shot. It’s fun to get to know the students as well as show them off to the rest of the staff….especially when they have a great CV, which this one does!

In case you ever have an intern, want to have one, or once had one, you can get my (editable) Expectations page here for free.

So… have you ever supervised an intern? What was your experience like?

  1. I just downloaded this checklist and I love that it’s concrete and clear. I tried to leave a comment on TpT but I got an error message and now it won’t let me leave comments at all. Just wanted to let you know that there’s a first year SLP grad student who appreciates a supervisor’s perspective on what makes a good intern!

  2. I’ve had student SLPs in the past. I live/work about an hour away from any SLP grad schools. Because of this, I only get commuter students when the schools have them. It’s been a great experience for me (and I hope for them as well)! I was hoping for another one this semester, but it didn’t work out ๐Ÿ™

  3. I have students every year, being so close to UNC-Chapel Hill. The students are top-notch over achievers. That being said, I did blog about the whole thing and am actually going to UNC this morning to talk to the first years about how to be a school intern.

    The university has us do a contract with students which spells out the expectations and what skills they want to develop. I address some of the other things here:

    Thanks for posting! Congrats on your TPT sales!
