Sharing a message from our friends at California Dance Education Association (CDEA):
Dear CDEA Members and Supporters,
We are writing to you with important information to help support the development of dance credential programs and the field of dance education in California.
CDEA will partner with university programs around CA that offer a Dance Credential. These university programs reach out to the organization to help with placement of Student Teachers (interns) in CA public schools. CDEA maintains this list of willing and qualified educators who are open to hosting student teachers in their dance classrooms.
Filling out this form does not guarantee that you will participate as a cooperating teacher; it simply indicates your interest and willingness to be contacted by university programs should an appropriate possible student teacher arise in your geographic location. Universities will engage in their own screening process for possible cooperating teachers, including potentially contacting your site administration.
Kim Hoj and Jessy Kronenberg
