Mission

Student reading to a childForging Partnerships for Teaching and Learning

Teacher candidates possess a foundation in liberal arts that supports and enhances studies and experiences about educational theory, research, collaboration, reflection and professional development. Current trends, best practices and performance assessment are inherent in the program design. Academic standards of basic education, program licensure standards, performance standards and the code of professional conduct are embedded in regulation, educational research and professional practice. The Education Department encourages the on-going participation of the educational community in program planning and evaluation in support of the conceptual framework for teaching that includes preparation and planning, classroom environment, instruction and professional responsibilities.

In support of this we are committed to: 

  • Honoring and supporting each child

  • Exploring career paths and educational opportunities 
  • Collaborating with all stakeholders 
  • Modeling reflective teaching, decision making, and leadership 
  • Advancing integrated instructional technology 
  • Articulating high expectations for all children 
  • Celebrating diversity
