St. Mary's University College Twickenham, England
During the last semester of their teacher preparation program, Molloy College Education students have the opportunity to student teach at St. Mary's University College in the suburbs of London, England.
Student teachers are:
- Supervised on a weekly basis by St. Mary's faculty and Molloy Division of Education faculty
- All evaluation documents are sent to Molloy to be added to the student's professional folder
- Molloy student teachers communicate via email on a frequent basis with a Molloy College Education faculty member.
- Molloy students who fulfill their student teaching requirements at St. Mary's are evaluated using New York State Education Department guidelines.
Student teachers from Molloy have the opportunity to live and work with students from other American colleges, as well as students from around the world. Student teachers are placed in either elementary or special education classrooms and experiences at both primary and intermediate levels are included, as required by New York State. St. Mary's offers the opportunity for secondary student teachers to participate in this program, as well.
St. Mary's has fully-equipped professional resource centers in which state-of-the-art teaching materials may be borrowed for use during student teaching. In addition, each student is given an email account and Internet access. Weekends and academic recesses provide numerous opportunities for travel within Britain and Ireland as well as to the continent. Scotland and Wales are just a short train ride away and Ireland can be visited in a weekend.
Upon returning to New York, student teachers can include their student teaching abroad experience in their professional resumé. This indicates to perspective employers your ability to adapt to new cultures and transfer teaching skills to new situations.
