Student Teacher & Observer Requests


At the beginning of each school year, District 401 building administrators will ask their teachers to complete a Student Teacher Google Form or a Teacher Observation Google Form if they are interested in having a student teacher or classroom observer at any time during the year.

Once teachers have completed their forms, databases will be created listing the teachers willing to have a student teacher or classroom observer. 

Students interested in doing their student teaching or classroom observations in a District 401 school are asked to follow the procedures listed below.
