Community connection

Community is an integral part of Monmouth’s teacher preparation. Students’ time in the preparation program involves working closely with an area high school drama or theatre teacher during their practicum work in the classroom. The final year at Monmouth concludes with a semester-long student teaching experience in a high school drama or theatre classroom.
