Student Teaching Candidates Participate in Mock Interviews
Two educators/administrators from Brockport Central School District offered an in-person mock interview professional development event to Dr. Jie Zhang’s group of student teachers in the Childhood Inclusive Education program.
Heartfelt thanks go to Lauren Combo, Assistant Principal of Hill Elementary School, and Brandon Broughton, Director of Learning and Staff Development at BCSD! On April 5, 2022. Combo and Broughton posed as the interviewers and provided great opportunities for the student teachers to practice their interview skills, receive constructive feedback, learn about the school administrators’ expectations, gain confidence, and be better prepared for their future careers.
The mock interview professional development event for student teaching candidates has been offered since 2016, with only one exception of the semester of Spring 2020. It switched online due to the pandemic, and this semester the in-person mock interview event was resumed. In addition to supporting Brockport students to learn and grow professionally, this event helped strengthen the partnership between the College and Brockport Central School District.
Special thanks are extended to Micheil Sheffield, Administrative Assistant of the Department of Education and Human Development, for the room reservation and guests’ parking permit arrangement, to support this event!
