Misericordia University teacher education majors recently received their student teaching assignments for the spring semester during the Student Teaching Seminar in Catherine Evans McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library. Twenty student teaches participated in the program, which prepares the undergraduates for classroom observation and instruction in several regional school districts.
