Student Teaching

Pre-Teacher Preparation Experiences:

Newton County School Systems pre-teacher preparation includes field experiences of observations, practicums, internships, fieldwork, and/or student teaching. These services provide the opportunity for college students to be mentored by veteran mentors to assist in developing the knowledge, skills and dispositions deemed essential to become effective professional educators. We will make all efforts to grant specific requests. However, placements are based upon availability and are not guaranteed.

Prospective Students:

Please do not contact individual schools or principals to request field experience placements. Contact the placement advisor/coordinator at your respective university to begin the placement request process.


All colleges/universities must have a current signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Newton County School System before a placement can be secured. The MOU must be signed by both the University Dean and Newton County School System Superintendent before it is deemed valid.

The placement advisor/coordinator should complete and submit the NCSS Request for Placement form via email to [email protected] OR [email protected]
