Coursework for Educators
Founded 90 years ago, Notre Dame College has a long tradition of teacher education. We continually review and update our teacher education programs with new courses to strive to offer professional development that informs teachers about emerging technologies, pedagogies and interpersonal relationships that are so important to have when working with students, families and administrators.
Teachers who hold an Early Childhood PK-3 Teaching license may add a fourth and fifth grade endorsement that is aligned with the Ohio Academic Content Standards for 4th and 5th grades. See page 18 in Spring 2014 catalog for information on this four course, 9.5 credit program. For additional questions, contact Karyn Wargo at 216-373-5286 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
