Student Teaching

Albuquerque Public Schools is strengthening our collaboration with universities and colleges to nurture a beneficial relationship and growth opportunity for its collegiate students and our employees, by pairing student teachers with APS highly qualified cooperating teachers.

Our Goal

Our goal is to create a positive classroom interaction experience while promoting cooperative education and internships that will help foster professional growth and build on the knowledge, skills, and values gained in the classroom environment.

Universities Seeking Student Teacher Placement 

To be considered for student teaching placement within APS, a negotiated memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the APS District Office and the attending university/college must be in place.  Please contact the district recruiter for new requests to initiate development of an MOU with APS.

Once an MOU is established universities/colleges may coordinate student placement directly with local school administration.  Final acceptance of placement is determined by the school administrator.
