Welcome to the Teaching Profession!
Ask any beginning teacher and you’re likely to encounter the same answer: as invaluable as the theory they absorb during their university years, there’s no substitution for the actual hands-on classroom experience.
This transition time is aided greatly by the teacher candidate program, operated through the College of Education in Saskatoon and the Faculty of Education in Regina. Similarly, the internship program, when able to tap into the practical knowledge of an experienced mentor, can also be invaluable.
Starting any endeavour can be daunting, but when beginning your career in the classroom you will need a lot more information, tools and resources to help you navigate your way than you could ever imagine or anticipate. Through ongoing feedback from teachers in their first five years and their colleagues, the STF has created many programs and resources that can help ease your way.
