Want to change the world? There's no better place to begin than the classroom. We're ready for a new approach to education, and you can start by serving as a role model and leader for high school students.
High school is a pivotal time in which students are cementing their interests and their identities. Teens of today are becoming world leaders for social change, engaging in diverse classroom topics and discussions, and inspiring communities with positive activism. Teachers with a passion for knowledge, creativity, and equal access to education are needed in classrooms across America.
If you're enthusiastic about sharing your love of history, English, or mathematics with high schoolers, then an Education concentration at the secondary level may be the right path for you.
Champlain's teacher education programs start you in relevant fieldwork in your first semester; you'll spend upward of 30 hours in real local classrooms in just your first year. Our Upside-Down Curriculum ensures that you build four years of robust experience in teaching, not just one or two.
Champlain will fully prepare you to apply for licensure to teach grades 7–12 in the state of Vermont. You also have the option to apply for a middle-grades endorsement through concentration pairings, or you may want to minor in topics like Computer Science, Social Justice, Global Studies, or Psychology.
You'll receive expert guidance from your Faculty Advisor so you can choose the path that will best suit your career goals.
Additionally, educators with a Vermont license are eligible to apply for certifications out of state under the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC).
Champlain's program has been structured to equip teachers to rise to the educational challenges of tomorrow. If you're passionate about imparting the lessons we can learn from history, encouraging healthy communication and expression, or sharing the joys of math, Champlain's Education major with a secondary-level concentration is your ideal path to a career in teaching high school.
