Teacher Career Ladder

Teacher Career Ladder

About the program:

Midland University has developed a program to meet the needs of local school districts to create qualified teachers who can make an impact in their classrooms. The two-year Teacher Career Ladder program aims to prepare anyone interested in teaching in a classroom with the ability to acquire a teaching certificate. An ideal candidate for this program would be an individual who holds college credit and wants to become an educator who holds employment as a para-educator in a K-6 classroom. Students will earn a field endorsement in Elementary Education K-8 and either a supplemental endorsement in Early Childhood Education, English as a Second Language, or Special Education, K-6.
