High School teachers have a very important responsibility to not only pass on the knowledge of the academic subject they teach, but to help their students develop the positive attitude and life skills needed to pursue a rewarding career or college degree after graduating.
With the number of new laws at the state and federal level governing high school teachers, it is important that education students receive the best possible education at the college level to prepare them for their future career.
The education programs at NWCCD: Gillette College and Sheridan College are designed to provide the initial foundation for preparing qualified teachers and related personnel for American schools. One objective of the program is to enable students to assess interest, aptitude and capabilities for a career in education. The second year supports the College’s commitment to provide a transfer program enabling students to complete Baccalaureate degrees at four-year colleges and universities.
Programs of study need to be planned with regard to the specific requirements of the institution to which the students are planning to transfer.
Students have the option of an A.A. degree, which includes a language component (eight credit hours required); or an A.S. degree, which does not require a language. In addition to suggested program requirements, students will have to meet the general education requirements of the A.A. or A.S. degrees.
