Middle Grades Education
The Thomas University Division of Education goal is to prepare teacher candidates who are knowledgeable in content, and are able to employ a variety of instructional strategies to help all students learn. Our faculty is committed to helping the teacher candidate become an effective middle grades teacher.
Our program offers small classes taught by highly qualified professors. Students entering each semester participate as a cohort of teacher candidates moving through the program together, providing the opportunity for students to build close working relationships. This program prepares students to teach two of the following: English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, or Social Studies in the Middle Schools (grades 4-8). Professors and advisors are available for frequent advising and guidance. A carefully planned sequence of methods courses have clinical experiences embedded to provide early and frequent opportunities to practice in local schools under the supervision of a mentor teacher and university supervisor.
We invite you to join us and become an educator prepared to teach in the schools of tomorrow!
