Programs in Teacher Education

Programs | Teacher Education


Our teacher education program provides both a solid theoretical foundation for teaching and learning as well as ample opportunities in elementary and secondary school classrooms to develop the requisite skills for effective teaching and learning. After you design your first unit of instruction in an introductory lesson design course, you then spend an entire week teaching those standards-based lessons in an actual K-12 classroom. You also participate in a year-long, senior-year placement during which teacher candidates spend about 70 hours in the first semester getting to know the students and school routines and then 560 hours in the following semester mastering the craft of teaching.

The mission statement of the Emmaus Teacher Education department is to produce reflective teachers with a Christian worldview, who glorify God and impact the world through their innovative yet sound and effective professional practice and lifestyle of exceptional service to others.
