Becoming a teacher is a rewarding experience in which teachers influence the lives of K-12 students in multiple ways. The Education Department focuses on “Preparing Competent, Caring, and Inquisitive Teachers for Global Responsibility” as delineated further in our conceptual framework.
This handbook outlines the procedures leading to teacher licensure and guides prospective students through the various Education Department curricula. It should serve as a reference tool and contains information that will be helpful such as meeting information and application deadlines. This information will be referred to often as you progress through the Teacher Education Program.
If after reading this document questions still exist, students should seek assistance from Education Department faculty or staff. (See contact list on page 5.)
The Education Department offices are located on the first floor of Koren. To make an appointment with a member of the Education Department, you may call or email them. Faculty members often have a sign-up sheet for appointments on their office door.
