Day in the life of a student teacher

SSU School of Education

SSU School of Education is recruiting student teachers for our series "Day in the life of a student teacher."


Dear AAAEL student teachers, we need you to sign up for a week to post one 300-500 word blog entry.

  • Tell your story in 300-500 words: audience will be SSU students, alumni and local educators
  • Illustrate your experience of what it's like to be in the SSU credential program as a student teacher/co-teacher
  • Articles should be like a diary, with a slice of life flavor
  • Describe your experiences to help recruit and encourage future students to enroll in the credential program
  • Emphasize your relationships between the student teacher and the kids; student teacher and the mentor teacher; student teacher and SSU faculty
  • Reflect on what it's like to plan lessons
  • Reflect on what it's like to reach students and what it feels like to work in a high school environment


Important Information:

  • Real names of minors should NOT be used in your articles; you can change their names or avoid using names
  • The blog article requires one picture of you and a second picture is recommended in your article to supplement what you are writing about
  • If a minor does appears in the photo, you will need to have their parent sign a photo release
  • Blogs will be viewed on the School of Education website and the AAAEL website. Blogs will also be shared on social media.
  • Once posted, we want to tag you and hope you will help us share your story online.
