Welcome to Edgewood College Cooperating Teacher Online Training

"A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning." - Brad Henry


This website is designed for educational professionals who are interested in mentoring student teachers from Edgewood College. Our hope is that this website will serve as a valuable resource to our PK-12 partners, offering updates on Division of Education student teaching criteria, policies and procedures.
After reading the information in each module, you will be asked to submit an assignment related to the module. This training module satisfies the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's training criteria for cooperating teachers. This website may also serve as a resource for experienced cooperating teachers providing update of the state of Wisconsin and teacher education preparation criteria, policies and procedures.
