Under certain conditions, the COE provides approval for those who already have paid employment as Teaching Assistants, Full Time Teachers, or Long-Term Substitute Teachers (with a minimum of a 12 week assignment) to remain in the current role and complete their Practicum 1 and/or 2 requirements in that setting. Please complete the relevant Google Form below. If you have any questions, please email Stephanie Koscielski at email@example.com or Christine Sykora at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is important to note that if you conduct an alternative practicum placement, you are an employee who is simultaneously completing a Practicum. UMSL cannot be responsible for any actions or changes implemented by your employer. If your position is lost or changed and/or you cannot complete your practicum, your practicum could be postponed until the following semester. UMSL will not provide a placement within a Studio School once the semester has already begun. Any plannings, meetings, or other other employer-based requirements are out of UMSL's requirements and control. UMSL will require all assignments, observations and other, as outlined in the practicum syllabus.
