Welcome to the School of Teacher Education!

Are you curious about becoming a teacher or teacher leader? Do you know someone who is? Our school is comprised of four programs, including early childhood development and education, elementary education, exceptional student education and secondary education. Each of our programs has degrees and certificates to explore. All aspects of pre-kindergarten through the 12th grade can be a door of opportunity for you, and I personally invite you to investigate all of STE's undergraduate and graduate offerings. You might find something new. Feel free to reach out and contact us anytime.

The STE faculty are experts in their fields, and our school takes great pride in embedding cutting-edge research findings into courses for practical application. We are passionate about student success and well-being, discovering new aspects of teacher education, involving community partners, including students from all backgrounds and cultures, and continuing to advance as a leader in innovative teacher-education practices.

If you are not yet enrolled, please look at what we have to offer. We welcome you to join our STE family as we work together to prepare highly qualified teachers and leaders of tomorrow. If you are already a part of our STE family, thank you for your dedication and efforts to PK-12 students, as well as your support of each other and all aspects of teacher education.

Go Knights, Charge On!
