Welcome Associate Teachers

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the faculty in the School of Education at Acadia University we would like to thank you for your willingness to accept this professional opportunity to work with one of our Bachelor of Education pre-service teachers. The practical practicum course, located in the schools, is an integral component of the professional preparation of beginning teachers. Your contributions in sharing your understandings of the teaching process along with your written review of the beginner’s progress are invaluable to the professional growth of those new to teaching. We believe that Acadia pre-service teachers bring an enthusiastic energy to teaching and a desire to learn of the rewards and challenges that this profession offers. As the pre-service teacher engages with the practicum process, their teaching practice and introduction to schools will be enhanced and complemented by their studies at the University. Learning in both sites offers the beginning professional the opportunity to connect theory and practice.

We invite you to read the Practicum Pamphet and Practicum Guidebook which offers important program information along with the procedures and policies that guide the pre-service teacher’s practicum.

All evaluation forms are available at: under “Forms/Resources”.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your role in this joint venture, please contact Mr. Everett MacPherson, Practicum Coordinator or 902-585-1711

Thank you again for your time, energy, and commitment to this practicum process. We look forward to this collaboration and hope that you find this professional experience rewarding.

Dr. Janet Dyment                                           Mr. Everett MacPherson

Director: Acadia School of Education                                Practicum Coordinator
