Become a Teacher, Change a Life!

In partnership with the UMSL Office of Precollegiate Services, the UMSL COE Future Teacher Leadership Academy 2022 is specifically designed to bring high school students a vision for a career in education. You will start your day with a college class: Tch Ed 2000 Becoming a Professional Educator. This one credit class will serve to ground you in the education profession, including its diverse career options and programs offered at the College of Education. The second morning session will give you a chance to dialogue with education professionals and fellow students, gain valuable leadership skills and learn what a career in education could mean for you.
