First Course in Teacher Education

Students enrolled in EDCI 201: Teacher Leadership in a Diverse Society or BK 250: Introduction to Birth-Kindergarten for BK majors will be made aware of requirements for admission to teacher education and are in the only course in the Professional Education Sequence that can be taken without being admitted to teacher education.  The course is usually taken in the sophomore year and includes placement for a specified number of hours in a K-12 school.

Transfer students who have been given credit for an equivalent course taken at another college/university (as determined by the student's program and the Registrar's Office) should follow the Admission to Teacher Education Program instructions.  Questions can be directed to the Coordinator of Education Admissions and Distance Programs, Rachel Wike.

Students are expected to observe professional standards for dress, prompt attendance, and behavior in field experiences as guests in host schools.
