Welcome to the Teacher Education Program!
 

The Teacher Education Program at the UCR School of Education will prepare you to be a critical-thinker and well-rounded educator who addresses the needs of all students in culturally responsive ways. Through relevant coursework and valuable fieldwork with partner school districts, our programs train aspiring teachers to serve schools through social justice oriented, community engaged frameworks.

In addition to developing pedagogical skill and rigorous content knowledge that align with Common Core State Standards, our programs train teachers to use theory to guide practice, approach teaching using collaborative and co-teaching models, practice restorative justice and models of authentic care, and integrate arts and technology across disciplines. Students participate in professional development activities including a Mock-Interview Day, resume critiques with district representatives and educators, and an annual UCR Teacher Job Fair exclusive for student teachers and alumni. You can choose to earn a California teaching credential only, or you can simultaneously earn a combined Master's in Education and credential in just over a year.

UCR has taught me how to teach with a purpose. I love knowing that I can make a change in students’ lives through teaching. I want to shape the minds of students to love math and make it more accessible and engaging.”
