ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING ACADEMIC LIFE STUDENT LIFE OUTREACH RESOURCES DIRECTORY

Student Teachers

Staff members in the Orientation and Mobility Department at CSB supervise many student teachers and interns from colleges and universities near and far.  The O&M program at CSB possesses many qualities that make it an ideal placement for those entering the field:

  • A variety of students with regard to age, additional handicaps, program emphasis.
  • The opportunity to observe/participate in other programs such as APE, technology, speech and language, and art.
  • The opportunity to work with more than one instructor, thereby gaining different experiences and seeing different teaching styles.
  • Participation in school wide activities such as concerts, snow day and carnival.
  • Exposure to state-of-the-art teaching supplies, including a variety of cane and tip styles, map-making machines, Tiger embosser, computers with JAWS and Duxbury.
  • Campus apartment for living quarters if intern lives far away.
  • Exposure to varied teaching environments that include semi-rural, residential, small business, large city, public transit (buses, rapid transit, train).
  • Opportunities to get ideas for lessons from visually impaired staff members and to see what works “in the real world”.
  • Exposure to professional groups and conferences held in the SF Bay area.

 Student teachers and interns add vitality to our group and we welcome them to the O&M department.
