Qualities of a Cooperating Teacher

This list is intended to be used as a tool by school/district administrators when selecting cooperating teachers. This list is not intended to exclude teachers from becoming a cooperating teacher, but ideally, cooperating teachers will possess many of the qualities outlined on this list. View the cooperating teacher qualities.

University Supervisor Expectations

There are some common threads across our initial teacher licensure programs. All of our students are required to be formally observed at least four times during their student teaching. School counseling students who do not have a teaching license must be observed three times in a classroom setting. For specifics, contact your program lead.


Mileage Reimbursement Policy

When traveling on official university business, university supervisors may request reimbursement of travel expenses by submitting a pre-athoratziaon request in Concur.  Requests for reimbursement must be submitted for payment in Concur within 60 days of incurring the cost, or at the conclusion of the travel, during which the expenditure was made in the appropriate fiscal year of the expense. Submitting reimbursement requests within 60 days ensures OSU's compliance with IRS rules that enables travel reimbursements to not be taxable.   

Supervisors will be reimbursed for miles outside the city of Corvallis.
