The education program at Regis College offers several pathways for students to become teachers upon graduation. Students learn how to plan curriculum at appropriate grade levels, demonstrate the ability to synthesize theory and practice in both college and pre-K through 12 settings, and learn about the curriculum at the appropriate grade level, including breadth, depth, integration, and application to a classroom setting.

As a teacher candidate, you must be able to create an environment where diversity is valued, where support and challenge are consistent expectations, and where collaboration in creating a community of learners is the norm.

MTEL preparation is integrated into a student’s curriculum plan, beginning with courses designed towards the Communication and Literacy Exam. Through practice tests, drills, class discussions, and short writing assignments, students will learn the expectations and best practices for approaching the test.

As students’ progress to content specific exams, directed workshops are utilized to provide a personalized and intentional approach to the exams.
