Student teaching placements are made in the Navajo Nation in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. Most placements are on the Reservation in Bureau of Indian Education schools. Other types of schools serving Navajo youth may also be used, including public schools off the Reservation. Most placement sites are in remote rural areas, although a few may be near towns bordering the Navajo Nation. Student teachers typically live in the boarding facilities on the school campus where many pupils live during the school week. Student teachers are generally placed in pairs and will share a dorm apartment or other accommodation on the school campus.
