Program Description:

Since 2003, Ball State University student teachers have been offered the unique opportunity to become immersed in the United States military community as well as the surrounding Germany communities in the Rhine and Mosul Valley region as they spend a semester placed in classrooms near Ramstein Air Force base. Students are placed with expert classroom teachers who serve as educational and cultural mentors. Although the schools are located in Germany, student teachers teach American children who are the dependents of military and civilian personnel stationed abroad. Student teachers complete a semester of student teaching and meet licensing requirements for Indiana teacher certification. A full-time, Ball State-approved supervisor accompanies the students and mentors them the entire time that they are student teaching in the Ramstein schools. The supervisor meets with them on a regular basis, observes them in the classroom, provides guidance, logistical support, and is responsible for evaluating their completion of the student teaching assignment.  The supervisor also works with school leaders, teachers, to ensure a successful student teaching experience and to assist in resolving any issues that might occur.
