Student Teaching Checklist

Welcome Student Teacher Candidate!

Below you will see a checklist of items needed for your student teaching file, but first we need to make sure you are currently listed in our database application the “Teacher Education Student Portal”.

All student teacher candidates should check to be sure they are in our database. You and your supervisor will utilize this application during your student teaching experience during the evaluation process.

You will probably find you are current from the time you first applied to the Teacher Education program, if not follow the instructions below.

The database application may be found using your eWeber portal as follows:


  • Go to
  • Click your portrait (circle) in the top right of the screen
  • Log in to your Weber account and when prompted, the two factor DUO authentication
  • You will be redirected to eWeber
  • In the “Search for Portal Apps….” area, search for Teacher Education Student Portal
  • The result will show a box called Teacher Education Student Portal
  • Save to your eWeber favorites by pushing the favorite option with the star
  • Add your information by pushing “Start Another Application” button 
  • (NOTE: do this ONLY if you do not see an active program listing under the “Your Applications” area or you will duplicate your account)

You will need to complete the checklist items below for our file and email them to:
