Teacher Degree - Online and Campus Programs

Teachers do more than impart knowledge. Teachers make a difference in the lives of their students. They must communicate with students, understand individual and cultural differences, and teach to students' educational and emotional needs. Above all, teachers must teach students how to:
  • interact with others,
  • communicate effectively,
  • use technology, and
  • use the skills they learn in school.
