University Supervisor, Department of Education


Posting Number: F150P




The Department of Education at John Carroll University seeks to extend its pool of university supervisors in our initial teacher licensure programs. University supervisors serve in a part-time capacity to observe, support, and evaluate preservice teachers’ growth.Applicants should have a minimum of a master’s degree and past licensure/experience at at least one of the following levels: primary (P-5), middle child (4-9), or adolescent/young adult (grades 7-12).


John Carroll’s Department of Education has been preparing educators to serve Northeast Ohio Schools for over 90 years. Our undergraduate 4-year teacher licensure program builds on the JCU identity as a Jesuit liberal arts university. Students take a rigorous set of Core classes across disciplines, develop their identities as teachers in Education coursework and field experiences across all four years, and culminate in their professional year, with a dedicated field placement for pre-student teaching (fall) and student teaching (spring). Applicants are encouraged to read about our programs and curriculum at the page.


University supervisors coordinate with their assigned students and respective cooperating teachers at their placement sites to arrange visits (three in the fall, four in the spring) to observe student-led lessons. University supervisors encourage their students to reflect on the planning/execution of their lessons to identify areas of success and those of potential improvement. Formal evaluative feedback is logged by university supervisors into an online platform for documentation/sharing.


Full consideration will be given to applications that are complete by May 11, although applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Supervision will begin at the start of the fall semester.
