Become a Cooperating Teacher

Thank you for your interest in hosting an FSW student. Below is some information about our Teacher Mentor Program at Florida SouthWestern State College and explain how very easy it is to help aspiring teacher candidates experience the real classroom.

Here is how FSW is different from other colleges:

  1. Students join your classroom when it is convenient for you.
  2. You are the head supervising teacher.
  3. Evaluations are done online.
  4. Practicum mentor teachers receive an $80 stipend per student.
  5. Intern mentor teachers receive a $300 stipend per semester.

Here is how to get involved:

  1. Fill out the mentor application and attach a copy of your teaching certificate and clinical training.
  2. Ask your administration to sign the recommendation paper
