Where Our Graduates Go
The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics expects jobs for
teachers at most levels to grow faster than the average for all
careers through 2020. Most openings are expected to result from the
retirement of many experienced teachers. Job prospects should be
best in rural and inner-city schools and for teachers in certain
subjects, including math, chemistry, physics, bilingual education,
and world languages.
Through the course of this innovative program, you will become
an initially or a permanently certified teacher, prepared for
creating, shaping, and sustaining transformational learning
environments that focus on your students and their individual
potential for success.
Upon completion of the course requirements in the program, the
student must successfully pass student teaching with a combined
score of 4 or higher on both PDE 430 evaluation forms. The student
