The three-week field experience will incorporate liaising with the Chief Learning Officer to co-create a school-based inquiry of interest. In our experience, teacher candidates benefit from a self-directed and broad experience in many classrooms and collaborating with many teachers. Our community benefits from the reflections and culminating project of the candidate’s inquiry.
It is important for the CFE candidate to come to our learning community with a strong interest or inquiry. We want this learning experience to be meaningful and collaborative. It’s an opportunity to explore teaching and learning in a hands-on way.
Willowstone Academy is a model Learn Forward school serving children ages 6 months through Gr 9 with seamless education and care.
