The Office of Professional Educator Services is committed to helping education majors complete their programs to become certified teachers in a timely and efficient manner. The personnel in this office are here to assist with admission to teacher education, with prompt and informed advisement for all elementary and middle grades majors, with the placement and supervision of all field experiences and student teachers, and with the application process for teacher certification and advanced degrees. In order to complete both field experiences and student teaching, students are required to submit a physical and TB test () and a Verified Credentials criminal background check. In addition, we are dedicated to Minority Recruitment efforts and to their identified programs that are housed in our office.
