Education Pathway


The Education Pathway is a teaching and learning community committed to providing educational experiences in partnership with area schools that prepare students with the knowledge base and specialized skills to become a reflective practitioner. The Pathway includes the first two years of standard teacher education courses along with general education coursework. Most students within the pathway are also seeking transfer admittance to a four-year institution for a certification-route bachelor’s degree. Certain courses in this pathway are recommended based on MoGEA content exam needed for certification track-bound students through DESE.
