Missouri Teaching Degrees

Teaching Training Classes in Missouri


Although their principles are simple, the people of Missouri are not. Rather, they are a diverse and open-minded group of individuals who combine Southern hospitality with Northern wit, and Midwestern charm. There are numerous universities throughout this large territories state, but most of them are nestled in Jefferson City and St. Louis; both of which have enough action to keep even the most discerning city slicker entertained.
Teaching is more than a job for many Americans. It is a calling that takes passion, patience, perseverance and above all, the inclination to share knowledge.

The best teachers are facilitators and coaches who apply ?hands-on? approaches to involve students in the learning process. Of course, the main goal of a teacher is to help a child to understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thought processes. Anyone who decides to take the plunge into the field of elementary education and teaching is embarking on a career that is both satisfying and challenging.

To teach general education you must have a bachelor's degree and have completed an approved teacher training program with a prescribed number of subject and education credits as well as supervised practice teaching. In addition, technology training and maintaining a minimum grade point average are high priorities for most states.

Applicants for a teaching license are tested for competency in basic skills, such as reading and writing, as well as teaching. Most states require the teacher to exhibit proficiency in his or her subject.

Not all teachers take the academic route into this fulfilling career. Many States now offer alternative licensure programs for teachers who have bachelor's degrees in the subject they will teach, but who lack the necessary education courses required for a regular license. Designed to ease shortages of teachers of certain subjects, these alternative licensure programs have expanded to attract other people into teaching, including recent college graduates and those changing from another career to teaching.
