The process of becoming a teacher requires a combination of commitment to helping students develop their full potential and mastering the techniques required to transfer knowledge to those we teach. Teachers impact all of us in profound ways, starting at the elementary school and later on in life when we pursue professional careers in adult settings.
Teaching in today’s diverse society requires interpersonal skills and knowledge that transcend human, cultural and linguistic barriers. CAU offers the opportunity to become an ethically and emotionally mature teacher that can change lives and set students on the path of knowledge and success.
The time is NOW to pursue your dream of becoming the teacher you always wanted to be, a professional capable of inspiring others, changing lives, and transforming minds to create a better world.
