Teacher Education

Your classroom is calling.

Lewis & Clark’s programs for educators prepare you to work in diverse school settings and with all children—including those from different cultural, linguistic, and economic backgrounds, and those who have special needs. Teachers learn to investigate and support each child’s unique growth—academic, social, and emotional—as citizens of the world. Here, extensive content preparation and research-based models form the basis of a rich intellectual experience and ensure your success beyond the classroom.

  • “As an ELA teacher, I am able to use a diverse range of authors and texts, and break out of the traditional white male-dominated Western Canon so that, in an increasingly diverse public school setting, all of my students can feel represented in the materials that we study.”

  • “Growing up I never had a teacher who looked like me. It’s made me realize that going into the field of education, working with diverse populations is my driving force.”
