Department Information:
The master teacher is a program of advanced preparation for classroom teachers intending to become teacher scholars and to assume positions of leadership within their schools with respect to the development of curriculum, instructional strategies, and related classroom concerns.

The program is intended to allow current teachers to focus on areas of emphasis in the P-12 classroom settings.

A minimum of one year of contracted teaching experience in a P-12 classroom setting is required for admission to the master teacher program.
