About the CHILE PDS at BS.edu

The Buffalo State College Department of Elementary Education and Reading (www.buffalostate.edu/elementaryeducation) offers its teacher education students multiple opportunities for field experiences.  As a part of their educational process, each student is required to take part in a variety of hands-on classroom training starting immediately upon acceptance into the program.

Now, we’re taking that to a whole new dimension!!!

Under the direction of Dr. Pixita Del Prado Hill, some qualified students will have the chance to do a field experience module in the country of Chile.

To view Dr. Del Prado Hill’s powerpoint presentation:  BecomingAGlobalTeacher.

A Professional Development Schools (PDS) experience places the student in a school and classroom setting, allowing for maximum exposure on every level to the teaching profession.  For more information about what a PDS is, please visit this website:  www.buffalostate.edu/pds.

You can also get more information about the National Association of Professional Development Schools (NAPDS) and its activities by visiting their website, http://www.napds.org/
