Mission Statement

Teaching is both an art and a skill. Therefore, successful teachers must receive the education and training necessary to develop a spirit of dedication, a realization of their responsibility, instructional proficiency and a mastery of their subject matter so that they will be prepared to face the challenges of the classroom and become effective teachers for all learners.

The teacher education program is designed to ensure that students acquire a sound knowledge of subject matter in the field or fields in which they expect to teach, have a strong liberal arts education, develop an understanding of the learning process, develop an understanding and mastery of various teaching methods and materials, attain a reasonable mastery of communication skills and develop a sense of responsibility to the pupil, the school and the community.
