Embedded Experience of Elementary Education

Immersion in the Schools

JBU believes in giving its teaching candidates hands on experience. We don't wait until your last semester of college to put you in local classrooms. You start as a freshman!

The Professional Development School is a partnership between Siloam Springs School DIstrict and JBU. Together we meet the learning needs of all students K-16: elementary, secondary and university.

JBU teaching candidates learn about student characteristics and needs, along with curriculum and teaching strategies, through a clinical model centered on active, authentic practice IN SCHOOLS! SSSD students learn by having JBU candidates in their classrooms teaching alongside K-12 teachers.

We impact students by:

  • Offering broad and extended classroom experiences throughout freshman - senior years
  • Increasing teaching responsibility
  • Learning from professors and classroom teachers
  • Involving teaching candidates in action projects
