Academic Progress

Once you are admitted into the Teacher Education program of your choice, you will focus on learning what you need to know to be the best teacher possible!  In EDUC 459, you will assemble a portfolio.  So, it is helpful if you save all of your work from all of your classes for possible inclusion in this portfolio.  Our faculty will help you actively engage in a culture of reflective practice and continuous improvement.  You will learn to advocate for your students and their learning through leadership, collaboration, innovation, flexibility, and critical thinking. 

Here are a few resources that you may need along the way:
Dispositions (pdf)
Growth and Retention (pdf)
Student Assistance Plan (pdf)
Appeals Procedure (pdf)

Remember, ALL of your coursework must be completed before you can student teach, so plan carefully.  In order to graduate, you must maintain a GPA of 2.75 or higher, earn a grade of "C" or better in all Education and EFRT courses, satisfactorily complete the student teaching experience, and demonstrate proficiency in all competencies as outlined in the student teaching handbook.
