Office of Field Placement

Regions for Student Teaching: Early Childhood and Secondary Education

Overview

When applying for student teaching, Early Childhood and Secondary Education applicants must indicate two preferred regional areas where they would like to be placed. At least one of these regions must be located within Philadelphia. The Assistant Director of Field Placement and/or the Field Placement Coordinator will use an applicant's indicated preferences as a guide to selecting the appropriate school or suburban district that meets the requirements of your program and Temple's guidelines for field placements. Then the Office of Field Placement will submit a placement request to that school or district on your behalf. This also applies to applicants for the Special Education Graduate Practicum.

Middle Grades applicants will be placed in one of a few selected district or charter schools within the School District of Philadelphia boundaries. No regional preference applies for the Middle Grades program. Instead, applicants will indicate both grade level and subject area preference.

IMPORTANT NOTES for ALL applicants:

  • You cannot be guaranteed a specific placement in a specific school,
  • applicants are not permitted to request placements directly with a district, school, or teacher, and
  • regardless of where a student teacher is placed for student teaching, he/she is required to attend the weekly Student Teaching Seminar classes located on Main Campus or at the school site.
