Earn your teaching certificate in accelerated fashion

As a student in the PACT program, you will learn lesson and unit planning, current trends in education, integration of technology into instruction, teaching science, math, reading, language arts, and social studies, and effective classroom management, assessment and instruction. You will also complete two internship blocks in your own classroom or someone else’s classroom with a mentor teacher and a university supervisor to provide the necessary coaching, mentorship, and support.
