Teacher Education

Give tomorrow’s educators the tools they need to succeed.

Two Teachers in Teacher Education

The field of education is evolving. Research has shown that teachers’ classroom interactions have a lasting impact on children’s academic and social development—and QRIS and accreditation programs have caught on. By integrating a strong focus on interactions and giving teachers tools to improve them, education programs help tomorrow’s educators stay current.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the professionalism of teaching, we now offer CEUs for completed coursework in Pre-K CLASS Observation Training and Making the Most of Classroom Interactions for Teachers.

“There’s nothing more useful than for students to see what’s developmentally appropriate and what’s developmentally inappropriate in audiovisual segments. Because a picture’s worth a thousand words.” –Dr. William Mosier, Wright State University
