Student Teaching Applicants
Applications for student teaching are due:
Missouri Content Assessments:
It is required to attempt the appropriate Missouri Content Assessment(s) the semester prior to student teaching. Refer to the Missouri Content Exams to be sure you are registered for the correct exam. Student teaching placements are not finalized until a score is verified by the School of Education and Child Development.
If you attempted and passed an appropriate Praxis II exam prior to September 2014, that score will be honored by DESE until December 31, 2016.
All students approved for student teaching will be provided information about completing FBI fingerprinting, which is required for a student teaching placement and state teacher certification. Student teaching will not begin until your fingerprinting clearance is accepted and posted to your DESE online profile. Drury University is longer permitted to send fingerprinting results from the Missouri State Highway Patrol to DESE.
Students enrolled in EDUC 476, EDUC 477 or EDUC 478 are assessed a $200 student teaching fee. This fee supports necessary cooperating teacher and university supervisor assignments. An additional $200 fee will be assessed for out-of-area student teaching.
