I am taking online classes and I have a few more classes to take until I am done with my Elementary Education degree. I will be done in Nov. of this year. I will need to student teach in Feb which will last at least 12 weeks. I am required to find my own internship so that I can student teach. I am not sure of how I go about finding my own internship. I have looked on the Florida Department of Education website for directions on the process but there are not any directions on this. I have passed all of my FTCE exams and have fingerprint clearance.
So now how do I find my own internship so I can student teach? Please help.
Thank you for your responses. Yes my school is approved by the state of Florida. I am taking classes with the University of Phoenix. I was told by my Teacher Education Specialist that the teacher I would be doing student teaching with will be my mentor and guide me through the teaching process and will document my student teaching with different forms and logs and then I send this to my school.
