Becoming a Teacher

The programs offered by the UO College of Education (COE) will prepare you as a professional to meet the lifelong learning and developmental needs of children and young adults.

Participating COE programs:

Elementary Multiple Subjects Teaching or Middle/High School Teaching (UOTeach)

The heart of the Sapsik’ʷałá project is the building of communities of practice, whose participants share problems of practice that arise in the workplace, learn from each other, build a professional identity, and find support and opportunities for career growth. Communities of practice foster your seamless evolution from pre-service teacher to induction as a new teacher through becoming a teacher leader.

The project provides a full year of support services when you begin teaching: provision of a mentor, formative evaluations of your teaching, support for attendance at a professional conference, cohort seminar meetings, an electronic distribution and discussion list, and access to the virtual curriculum and research center.
