Cooperating Mentor Teachers

Mentor Teacher's Information & Forms

Cooperating Teacher Handbook

On behalf of Grand Valley State University's College of Education and the Graduate Teacher Certification Program, we thank you for allowing our GTC students to intern with you. Teachers who agree to host interns play a vital role in training future teachers and we applaud your willingness to work with our intern and to share your students with a novice teacher.

The Graduate Teacher Certification Handbook (available in the link below) contains information about the Student Teaching semester that should be useful to both you and your Student Teacher. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact your Student Teacher’s Field Coordinator or the College of Education at (616) 331-6650. Again, thank you for your efforts and for collaborating with us.
