Through a cohort model, teachers in the program engage in small learning communities that encourage collaboration, problem-solving, and the development of knowledge and skills that will help prepare teachers for leadership responsibilities. The program focuses on core concepts of equity, educational technology integration, and the 4 Cs (critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration) to prepare preschool through grade 8 teachers to foster and use a student-centered approach to better meet the needs of all their students.

          Emphases:

This emphasis is designed to meet the greater community and professional need for quality education during the critical early years of school. The educational demand for sound planning and instruction in preschool, kindergarten, and the primary grades calls for effective specialists in early childhood education.

The Math and Science emphasis was designed in response to the urgent nationwide call for excellence in mathematics and science teaching at all levels, preschool through grade 8. The emphasis enriches and deepens teachers’ understanding of mathematics and science curriculum and pedagogy, provides the opportunity to promote problem solving specifically through the use of technology, and prepares teachers for leadership roles in their schools and districts in math and science.
