Students in a teacher education class

Internships & Research


What opportunities will you have to interact with children if you come to Coe?

As an education student at Coe, you will complete a variety of field experiences in area schools before your full-time student-teaching semester. Elementary education majors complete field experiences in two of our core program courses, in their Practicum course and in three of their content methods courses. Secondary education minors complete field experiences in two of our core program courses, in their Practicum course and in their content area methods course. In addition to these program-related experiences, you will have the opportunity to work with school-aged children and adolescents. Elementary education majors teach lessons in an after-school Science Club at a local school each fall and at a Young Writers Conference on campus each spring. You also can use your work-study funds to tutor in area schools.

Where can you do your student teaching?

While the vast majority of Coe students complete student teaching in area schools, you have two additional options:

  • Coe has a long-standing association with the Aldine Independent School district in Aldine, Texas. The Aldine district offers a student-teaching experience in a school with a highly diverse student population with excellent support from district staff. Learn more at http://www.aldine.k12.tx.us.
  • Coe students can live and student teach through The Chicago Center Program, which has provided urban teaching experiences for more than 40 years. Read more at http://www.chicagocenter.org/.
