Parkersburg, W.Va. (Jan. 25, 2023) – West Virginia University at Parkersburg is proud to announce its Spring 2023 clinical teacher candidates.
The WVU Parkersburg Elementary Education program provides field experience in the classroom as early as the freshman year. With the traditional student teaching model, teacher candidates spend a semester in two classrooms and quickly assume teaching responsibilities under the mentorship of an experienced teacher until they are teaching full-time. The new residency model places teacher candidates in one classroom for their entire senior year, and they assume responsibilities more gradually.
“We are extremely proud of our student teacher and Residency I and II candidates. Our teacher candidates have spent countless hours preparing for this semester,” stated Dr. Bobbi Marshall, Dean of Professional Studies. “Coursework is completed, national exams have been passed, numerous lesson plans have been written—They are now prepared to take on the responsibility of educating our state’s most important resource – our children.”
