The face of teacher supervision has changed tremendously in the past decades. That, of course, has impacted the supervision of student teachers as well. Supervision has evolved from a relatively unimportant role to a major one that assists in the school improvement process. A veteran student teacher supervisor chronicles stu{fent teacher assignments that have been amended, created, or deleted to meet changing needs. 1hese changes have been fashioned by multiple sources: the needs of student teachers, the teacher education program, district and state requirements, as well as a sh(ft in educational paradigms. Supervision is crucial to the improvement of teaching and learning. In the next years, the evolution of supervision will dictate whether its evolving precepts create a solid foundation, especially at the pre-service stage, where teaching and learning can be enhanced or simply become another divergent path.
