Highly qualified teachers hold the key to shaping the future and changing lives. Teachers are essential in preparing and inspiring students to grow into their best and brightest selves, and they are needed now more than ever.

Unleashing your full potential as an educator begins with learning from our experienced faculty and continues beyond the classroom as you put your teaching knowledge and skills into practice.

  • Interact with simulated students in a mixed-reality classroom.
  • Participate in weekly professional development workshops to complement your courses.
  • Gain hands-on experience through service-learning opportunities and internships with any of UCF’s partner school districts, children’s hospitals and other educational settings.
