Field Placement

Field Placement

As part of your studies at Emporia State University, you may be in a class requiring you to visit a K-12 school. If a field placement is required for your class, your instructor will arrange for you to work with the Office of Field Placement and Licensure to secure a placement.

If you have questions about securing a placement, you may contact Kasey Boyce at, the Field Placement Coordinator. They place students from The Teachers College in practicums and clinical placements for the Master of Science in Elementary Education, SLIM, and School Counseling programs as well as ED/EL 220 field placements. Kasey also monitors student performance for students in ED/EL 220 and assists the instructors as needed. They also hire tutors for the Family Literacy Program. These tutors are placed in the areas of Reading/Literacy (K -5th) and Math (K-9th).

Mary Benjamin,, our administrative specialist, secures internship placements for Phase II classes.

To be admitted to the Teacher Education program, you must provide documentation to show that you have 100 hours of supervised work experience with children or youth. Please use the 100 Hours of Supervised Work Experience form.pdf to document your experiences working with children.

Please contact us any time if you have questions about field placement.
