Preparing Students to Become Effective Educators

Welcome to the Moore School of Education, where there are two distinct career/ministry paths, each one undergirded by a strong core of biblical and general education courses. First, there is the educational path, which studies early childhood and K-12 education. This path advances an understanding of the effective processes needed in child and adolescent learning. This path trains individuals as elementary, health/PE, music, and secondary English teachers. The second path is for deaf interpreting, which prepares individuals to be skilled communicators/interpreters in a variety of settings.

Students in these programs will have the opportunity to learn and develop the professional, personal, and spiritual dispositions necessary to be effective teachers or interpreters. These skills develop under the supervision of an experienced and qualified faculty.  However, becoming a teacher or interpreter is much more than simply taking a series of courses. It also involves many hours of supervised practical experiences and passing appropriate professional exams.
