YOUR TEACHER EDUCATION EXPERIENCE

  • Curriculum is designed to integrate academic coursework with field experience.
  • Programs prepare graduates to assume leadership roles in both public and private schools.
  • Students work closely with the teacher education faculty, who are committed to social justice and community.
