Wondering If Teaching is Right For You?

The Education Department’s services give you opportunities, at little to no cost, to explore careers in education. Access through the program’s streamlined information to start your exploration in teaching careers.

Our Mission

The Teacher Preparation Pipeline program mission is to identify future teachers and give them an opportunity to start their career pathway to teaching by starting at the Community College level. This program is designed to support students that are interested in K-12 education and/or students and professionals working in industry who want to teach Career and Technical Education (CTE).

Student Opportunity

Students will have the exciting opportunity to be mentored by outstanding local faculty when enrolled in ED80 and ED80L. ED80 provides a general introduction to educational theory and practice while ED80L provides Service Learning opportunities in educational contexts throughout the area. Both courses are designed for individuals that are considering a career in education or would like to learn more about education in the elementary, secondary, or CTE fields.The courses provide opportunities for observation and participation in and beyond classroom situations, as well as exposing students to the requirements, duties, and responsibilities of the teaching profession.

I strongly encourage anyone thinking about going into teaching to take these classes. They provide serious preparation and give a good grounding.
-Tom Johnson, Former Student
