International Student Teaching- Jamaica
Currently students are housed in dorm suites at Church's Teachers College in Mandeville
The Jamaica Student Teaching Program is organized much like a traditional faculty-led course; program participants and the faculty advisor travel together to Jamaica. They live and work among Jamaicans for the duration of the student teaching placement in the mountains surrounding Mandeville in Manchester Parish and cultural group outings are included. Student teachers are placed in placements that meet their program/licensure requirements with a minimum two student teachers per school. Students in Early Childhood Education, Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence (Elementary) Education, Secondary Education, Physical Education and Special Education may participate in this program.
Student Life and SurroundingsMandeville has a population of approximately 72,000. Mandeville has a town square, parish church and clock tower, and many large, elegant early nineteenth-century houses line the winding streets in the town center. The grassy square is somewhat like a village green and Mandeville has been described as the most English town in Jamaica.
