Teacher Educators

During their time at MSU, teacher candidates work with and learn from different kinds of teacher educators in many different contexts.  Some are school- and community-based mentor teachers; some are course instructors of MSU courses the candidate takes on campus or in school sites; and some are university-based clinical educators or “field instructors” that support the intern’s and mentor’s work together in schools.  These educators, in their different but complementary roles, provide the network of support and backbone of our field-based learning mission and are the basis for successful professional learning experiences for teacher candidates while in the field.
