Dear CARE applicant:
Thank you for submitting an application to enter the teacher certification program at Eastern Connecticut State University. At this time, we invite you to sign up for a CARE interview. Please be sure to carefully note down your interview time and location, and plan to arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled time.
Interview procedures: The interviews will be led by two faculty members, one who is a CARE committee member and another faculty member of our Education Unit. There will be 2 to 4 applicants in each half hour long interview. You will be expected to participate fully in the discussion, but not dominate its flow. Be prepared for the interview by presenting yourself as a professional, as if you were seeking a teaching position.
Interview preparation: To prepare for the interview, please watch this YouTube video entitled, "Becoming a Culturally Responsive Teacher", then read the two documents (linked here) on Candidate Learning Outcomes (CLO) and CT Code of Professional Responsibility for Educators. The video and documents will be discussed in the interview.
After the interview, the CARE committee will review your complete application package and make its decision. You will be notified via your Eastern email and/or the address you identified in your application. If you have to register for next semester’s classes before you receive notification from us, we recommend that you register for your required academic courses and then add and drop the teacher education coursework at a later time.
