Teacher Education Department
Welcome to the Teacher Education Department. Teaching has been called “the noblest profession.” It has also been called “the profession that teaches all the other professions.” Teaching is a demanding, but rewarding profession. Former U.S. Secretary of Education Shirley Hufstedler stated: “The role of the teacher remains the highest calling of a free people.”
The Teacher Education Department has been accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). All of our programs are designed to prepare pre-service elementary, secondary, and special education teachers to meet the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) standards. Upon completion of our programs, students will demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be effective and successful entry-level teachers.
