How to be an Effective Student Teacher
Updated: Sep 9, 2022
In this week's podcast, Dr. Shani Challenor and I discuss how to be an effective student teacher - before, during, and after student teaching. Several practical tips are shared that you can implement today during your student teaching experience.
Dr. Shani is an exceptional education teacher who is passionate about this work. Her philosophy of education is that all children are exceptional and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. She desires to create an atmosphere where scholars and educators can meet their full potential. Scholars and stakeholders must be provided with a safe environment where they are invited to share their brilliant thoughts and become risk-takers.
