Teaching positions in Elementary or Secondary Public, Private or Charter Schools.
The Marygrove College Education Department collaboratively prepares educators committed to the success of all students believing that quality education is vital to wholeness of persons, sustainability of communities, and a vibrant, just democratic society. The Master of Education plus Teacher Certification provides those interested in becoming teacher with the background knowledge and experience to be a successful educational leader in a K-12 classroom.
The Elementary Level teaching certificate allows the holder to teach all subjects in a self-contained classroom, grades K-8. The Secondary Level certified teacher is allowed to instruct grades 6-12 in endorsed subjects. Art teachers are certified to teach their subject area across the K-12 spectrum, minors are not required in this comprehensive teaching major.
An Elementary or Secondary Education student must have a certifiable teaching major for which Marygrove is authorized to recommend for Provisional Certification. An Elementary Education student also must complete the Elementary Education minor offered by Marygrove. A Secondary Education student must complete a certifiable Marygrove teaching minor.
Every Marygrove teacher preparation student is expected to have a strong liberal arts background, as described by the Professional Standards for Michigan Teachers. Transcripts are reviewed for such an academic background. Where gaps are evident, additional pre-requisite work will be required.
Students have individual plans of work depending on the coursework required for a teachable major and minor. The professional sequence of courses includes 27-30 hours of coursework and six to ten hours of Student Teaching. A graduate level research course and three additional cognate courses in an area of the student’s choosing (Reading, Educational Technology or Special Education) are required for the Masters.
