Who are the university supervisors and what do they do?
University Supervisors are members of the faculty of Department of Music at Georgia College who teach, coach, supervise, and professionally “parent” their teacher candidates. These members of the music department faculty are familiar with the students who will be teacher candidates having worked with these students over the course of the student’s university career. Each of these music education faculty decide how teacher candidates are paired with host teachers; makes the arrangements for each candidate’s placement with the host teacher and the school administrator; supervises each candidate’s performance during the placement; confers with the host teachers often; and awards a grade to the teacher candidate for his or her field experience.
The names, phone numbers, and email addresses for all the University Supervisors appear at the end of this page. Please know that they are eager to be of service to you as you work with your teacher candidate. Do not hesitate to request a visit, a conference, or information from the university supervisor at any time during our teacher candidate’s placement with you. All University Supervisors have intense pride in their stewardship of these teacher candidates. They want to see them succeed in your classroom and to thrive under your tutelage and good example. Call on them as often as you need them.
