Whitworth University Undergraduate Teacher Education Program

The Whitworth Department of Teacher Education views the role of the teacher as a calling, a commitment to understanding and responding compassionately to the needs of children and youth. Faculty view our graduates as educators of mind and heart who serve as scholars, community members, guardians, effective practitioners, and visionary leaders.

Meaningful interaction with professors, local teachers and administrators helps undergraduate teacher-certification students grow and develop beyond the walls of the classroom and the boundaries of the Whitworth campus. All undergraduate students document their positive impact on student academic achievement as they fulfill their student-teaching experiences, preparing them to enter the public and private school arenas as fully qualified professionals. Teacher candidates learn the importance and skills of collaboration with peers as they design lessons, analyze student data, and plan for each child's success.
