Our Motto: Teach with Intention
The Department of Education at JSC has a long and celebrated history of preparing teachers and providing advanced studies for working professionals. Our faculty members are inspiring, dedicated and contemporary professors who have the theoretical and practical background to help students become outstanding teachers and influential leaders in their field.
We believe that teaching is truly the world’s most important career. You can probably point to a teacher who’s had a profound impact on you — maybe that’s even why you’re here. In fact, according to a 2012 study by the Rand Corporation, “teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. Clearly, a single teacher can shape the course of a young person’s future, for better or worse.”
At Johnson State College, we’re committed to developing teachers who shape young lives for the better: Teachers who are passionate about teaching, inclusive and progressive in their practices, up-to-date in their techniques; Teachers who are prepared not only to adapt to change, but to lead that change.
Join us and prepare to be the teacher who changes lives, one by one, for the better.
