Our program focuses on preparing you to facilitate the learning of all students. Becoming a facilitator who affects student learning invites you to learn the complexity of teaching. The teacher preparation program defines this complexity as being comprised of four components: Planning and Preparation, Instruction, Classroom Environment, and Professional Responsibility.
