We are proud of our accomplishments in the pass rates for national teacher exams and in content specific areas. In addition, the department distinguishes itself in offering energetic involvement in cross-cultural opportunities, a sincere interest in diversity and the acceptance and promotion of differences, and a determination to prepare teachers to a rigorous standard. Every professor brings to the classroom significant teaching experience and varied expertise that is supported by relevant theory. Most importantly, they pursue a personal relationship with their teacher candidates, coming alongside them and modeling the skills of successful teachers.
