Educate Local provides teacher licensure candidates the opportunity to gain experience and develop their perspective of education through volunteering, observing and participating in various campus, community and educational settings.
As Educate Local participants, teacher candidates begin to build their professional portfolio during their freshman year and continue through graduation. These opportunities provide candidates with the added value of experience and a depth of understanding that will support and enrich their teacher preparation.
