• Helping Candidates Find Their Voice

  • Interns, cooperating teachers and administrators, and faculty involved with the St. John’s University RISE Program discuss the program’s approach to helping candidates develop their own teaching style and professional voice. Candidates describe the benefits of being immersed in the school environment for building their confidence and identity as teaching professionals, and faculty and mentors explain how they balance clear expectations for outcomes with the flexibility for candidates to put their own spin on lessons.
