Student Teaching Awards
Students must be nominated for these awards by both their Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher. Please note that students are not able to apply for these awards on their own. Based on their professional judgement, the Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher will invite nominated students to complete the necessary personal statement when and if they are chosen. Students are requested to refrain from actively or aggressively soliciting their Supervisor and Cooperating Teacher for award nominations, as this will result in not being nominated. Nomination forms are distributed in the Cooperating Teacher's and Supervisor's package of forms.
