University supervisors are extensions of the School of Education. They serve as ambassadors to schools and districts for the School of Education. They assist teacher candidates to develop, practice, and refine the skills and habits of becoming an excellent educator. University supervisors dialogue with mentor teachers about how to enhance the learning experiences of P-12 students and focus the learning experiences of LSU teacher candidates. They observe and report on the candidate’s achievement of competencies. University supervisors collaborate with mentor teachers to determine the candidate’s fitness for duty.
