    For SFU Pre-Service Teachers

    Theory and Practice is the bond that prepares our students in the Education Department. Our goal is to provide an environment for our prospective early childhood, middle childhood, special education and secondary teachers to foster pedagogical skills and showcase talents in practical educational environments. Field experiences begin during the first education course. By graduation, SFU students will have completed 200 hours of field experiences and 15 weeks of student teaching in area schools and educational settings.
