The teaching profession conjures up different images for different people. One person may picture helping little children cut and paste or learn to count, while another may picture explaining complex physics problems to teenagers. Yet another may see themselves explaining major events in national history to middle schoolers. The truth is that teaching can span a variety of subjects and age ranges. The question is, what do you want to teach?

Teacher Prep Program

All students need to be admitted to the Teacher Preparation Program before the end of their sophomore year. You must be admitted to the Teacher Preparation Program before taking required professional education core classes.
