The Teacher Educator Academy is designed for students who are considering the elementary/secondary teaching profession or a career as a corporate educator. The course offers students the opportunity to put theory into action through classroom work and the practicum. Students will develop skills and professionalism needed to succeed as an educator as they work directly with students/adults in the practicum. Each student is assigned to a district school within the high school attendance boundaries or to a corporate education department. A blended instructional model of classroom and online learning is used to deliver instruction and to provide opportunities for students to develop their beliefs and philosophy of education. Students will participate in Educators Rising as part of the course requirements.
Students must provide their own transportation for practicum.
