Set up your student teacher for success
by giving him or her the gift of organization
! This binder will help your student teacher keep track of important dates

Having a student teacher is a huge responsibility

would want to work alongside
every day... all while still being held responsible for the learning of your students.
Don't let your student teacher
just wing it! They need ONE PLACE
to go to find the information
they need and to record the information they want to remember.
