As more teachers go through the CiOT program, we are calling on more of the experienced VTVLC teachers to act as Cooperating Teachers in the Practicum. This session is for anyone who is, has been, or wants to be either a “Teacher Candidate” or a Cooperating Teacher. We would like to get everyone together to talk about how the program works, how it’s supposed to work, and share ideas and best practices to make it better. So whether you’ve been a participant or would like to learn more about being a Collaborating teacher this workshop is for you.
