Informed by research compiled from more than 140 renowned education experts and driven by our passion for student success, DCSD offers families their choice of school to attend, a carefully designed curriculum that goes well above and beyond the required content to instill 21st century skills that students will need to succeed in the college or career pathway of their choice, individualized attention to support their learning, and a balanced assessment system that removes the emphasis on a single standardized test and memorization, instead focusing on critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration.

DCSD Student Teachers...

Student Teachers are a key part of our teaching community. We want to engage with college students who are pursing teaching as a career early in their college education. DCSD will provide opportunities to shadow in a school, professional development within our district, and real world experiences while a student.

Student teaching is the culmination of the teacher education program, providing the opportunity to incorporate theory learned into classroom application and practice. A successful student teaching experience is a critical component in preparing aspiring teachers to become effective full-time classroom instructors and should be considered to be the single most important experience in a teacher preparation program.

While with the Douglas County School District, you will have the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience with a dynamic and innovative school district. By working with experienced cooperating teachers, student teachers can learn the instructional strategies, assessment practices, and classroom management skills that result in positive student outcomes.

By working together, we hope to nurture the professional growth of student teacher interns, support the continued professional development of cooperating teachers, provide for quality learning experiences for the children in our school, and strengthen our partnerships with higher education institutions.
