Becoming a teacher is a wonderful way to use the gifts that God has given you to inspire young people in life-changing ways. As you study education at NCU, you will get the skills and knowledge you need to become a highly qualified teacher.
Completion of this program will result in recommendation to the Teacher Standards & Practices Commission of Oregon (TSPC) for an initial teaching license in early childhood, elementary, middle, or secondary level education.
Students will learn to implement strong classroom management, best teaching practices, well-crafted lesson plans, and useful assessment tools. You will also get a strong understanding of what is expected of teachers and students for state standards and benchmarks. All this takes place amid a liberal arts Christian university where your knowledge is broadened, your faith is deepened, and your ethics are grounded.
Teacher Education majors are able to take part in the Education Club, where they meet to discuss issues pertaining to today's Teacher Education students and travel to annual conferences to learn more about available teaching positions and job opportunities.
