Field Experience

In Rio Salado's Teacher in Residence program we are actively seeking to weave course content together with "real world" application through required school observations and interaction in K-12 classrooms. Therefore, most courses require 5-20 hours of field experience. This requirement is described in the syllabus in Lesson 3 of each course.

Since you will have your own classroom you will be required to complete the observation field experience hours with another certified teacher. Your administrator may be responsible to verify completed field experience requirements. It is recommended that you contact the field experience office at 480-517-8140 to begin the request process. However, you may not begin your field experience until you have successfully completed Lesson 3 of each course.
