Welcome to Education
The Turner Teacher Education Program is designed to provide an introduction to the teaching profession. ED 101 will provide an opportunity to explore teaching as a career while working toward an Associate in Arts Degree in Liberal Studies. Included is a combination of in-class theory and information about teaching, along with an opportunity to intern with a local school.
Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is a six-unit certificate program for students interested in teaching English abroad. Graduates of this program have gone to South America, Asia and other countries to teach. In order to be certified, students must complete all six courses.
For information regarding the TEFL program, please call faculty member Lou Spaventa at ext. 3560 or the SBCC Professional Development Center at 683-8283.
