The Teacher Education Program seeks to instill in its graduates a love of learning, an interest in continued professional growth, reflection on one’s teaching effectiveness, and the confidence that results from membership in a supportive community.
Barton’s Teacher Education Program is organized around the concept of the evolving professional teacher and emphasizes a commitment to knowledge of content, pedagogical techniques, cultural responsiveness, and leadership skills. View our Conceptual Framework here.
