Teacher Education Admission

 

 The Teacher Education Program (TEP) prepares undergraduate students to become highly effective and responsive educators.  The program leads to an Initial license in Mississippi at the elementary or secondary school level.

Grounded in urban-focused teaching and learning opportunities, the TEP has three primary components:  1) A comprehensive program of study in Education coursework, 2) A solid grounding in subject matter knowledge, and 3) A robust sequence of field-based experiences.  Each of these components includes an emphasis on the responsive educator.

The preparation of TEP students is guided by the College of Education and Human Development Responsive Educator Framework, state, and national standards.  The Mississippi Department of Education outlines the regulations for Educator Licensure and Preparation Program Approval.  The professional standards for teachers identify the knowledge and skills that all teachers must demonstrate and organize into five standards: 1)   Plans Curriculum and Instruction, 2)   Delivers Effective Instruction, 3)   Manages Classroom and Climate, 4)   Promotes Equity, 5)  Meets Professional Responsibilities.
