The Teacher Education Program has a specific partnership with PS 28 in Paterson as one option for students interested in becoming elementary teachers. This course and experience focuses on introducing our students to a variety of reading and writing strategies and then implementing those with PS 28 students.
In addition, we place students in a variety of schools to complete the requirements of Literacy Theory and Practice.
Your final hands-on experience will be student teaching for a semester. Ramapo has many connections to assist in student teaching placement in the Bergen County area, but also encourages students to conduct their student teaching in a district closer to their hometown if they wish.
