Secondary Education

School of Teacher Education

Education is a rewarding and challenging profession that is constantly changing. Teachers have the opportunity to educate and nurture young adults to be lifelong learners, leaders, and responsible citizens. Secondary education offers the unique chance for teachers to share their passion and expertise for a specific subject. High-quality teachers are in demand all across the country, and our teacher program is nationally recognized. Our professors work with students to refine teaching skills and build confidence in pedagogy and content knowledge. We are extremely proud of our teacher education programs and of the graduates we produce to fill the classrooms in the public schools of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain region, as well as schools across the country. We strongly encourage students who may be interested in pursuing an education program to explore our secondary programs and to contact professors with any questions or concerns.
