Fall 2003 Freshmen seeking Elementary Certification: To satisfy your General Education Science/Math requirements you many register for Integrated Math-Physical Science SINT 101 (4 credits). This is the first of three courses designed to give our pre-service elementary teachers an edge in a very competitive job market. Contact Dr. Richard Russo in D-212 for more information.
If you have registered for MEDU 315 or MEDU 443, your placement paperwork is due in the Placement Office by May 1, 2003. If you do not get your paperwork in by then you will have to find your own placement. Paperwork can be picked up in G-404.
If you plan on student teaching in Fall 2003 please attend ONE of the
orientation programs scheduled for Tuesday,
May 13, 2003. The first is
at 1 pm and the second is at 5 pm. Both will
be held in G-404.
If you are registering for MEDU 315 or MEDU 443 for the Fall
2003 Semester please pick up the following items in the Teacher Education
Office when requesting your permit:

License (Posted 1/9/03)
Students who have completed 60 credit hours are strongly encouraged
to apply for their substitute licenses. This will help facilitate
your required school placements. Please see Pam Marcus in G-147,
ext. 7885 for information on how to do this.
Update (Posted 1/10/03)
Please note: If you are registered for either MEDU 315 Principles
and Practices of Teaching or MEDU 443 Teaching for Effective Learning
observation hours are required IN ADDITION to your classroom time
at Ramapo College. The school district that you are to observe in
must not be the town that you reside in. The school that you observe
in cannot be one that you graduated from. If you have children,
you cannot observe in a school that they attend. You should be observing
a state certified teacher in a grade from K-12.
