Student Teacher Placements

Every year, the Cree School Board hosts student-teachers to complete their practicum during year four of their Bachelor of Education. One of our associate teachers will share their knowledge and best practices in teaching in an Indigenous setting. Discuss with the person responsible for internships at your university and mention your interest in the CSB and one of our schools.
