- My student teaching experience was wonderful. As a practicing teacher I see student teachers come into my building who have not had the training needed to start teaching and it makes me all the more grateful for my own experience at Bard. The involvement of the mentor teachers with Bard makes a HUGE difference. There was an enormous amount of support and guidance provided.
