Continuing education for teachers

Specialized courses to help you grow

State specific teaching courses

Continued education is important for many professionals, but for teachers it’s particularly critical. Educators have to stay current in their field in order to effectively lead their classroom. Often times they must also meet certain state requirements for potential recertification, endorsements and professional development.

You can take state-specific teaching courses to maintain your skills and broaden your areas of knowledge depending upon your state’s requirements. This can help enhance your abilities as an educator and have an even greater impact on your classroom.

Our course offerings vary by state, but explore topics like assessment and instruction, teaching methods for exceptional learners and cultural awareness and effective collaboration among teachers. We have some state specific teaching courses that look at state constitutions and instructing in a Structured English Immersion (SEI) environment.  

You can also learn about the principles for standards-based assessments, second language acquisition theories and strategies for teaching learners with disabilities. Additionally, administrative internships are available in select states.

Our state specific teaching courses feature:

  • Experienced faculty who understand what it’s like to work in the field.
  • Small class sizes so that you have increased guidance and a more personal experience.
  • Access to valuable online student resources, including writing and math assistance.
  • Important career resources and guidance.

Our state specific teaching courses are designed to help you meet your goals as a professional educator.  They can help you broaden your knowledge, deepen your understanding in key areas and become a more effective educator.

Helping working professionals get the education they need is at the heart of all we do. You can take a course online, from comfort of your home, allowing you to more conveniently fit continued education into your schedule.
