Becoming a Teacher

Student teaching plays a pivotal role in preparing aspiring educators for the challenges and responsibilities of the classroom. It bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge gained through coursework and the practical application of teaching strategies in a real-world setting.

The AASD requires that college/university placement coordinators communicate directly with the District Contacts to determine placements for all students.

Individual students should never contact principals or teachers on their own.

Students sign a Pledge to Education their Senior year.

Each year we celebrate our graduating seniors who have committed to pursuing a career in education with a Pledge to Education Signing Event. These students have participated in programming to explore careers, such as Intro to Teaching, and signed a Pledge to Education that guarantees them an interview with our Chief Human Resources Officer after their completion of a degree in Education.
