Position Type Faculty Work Hours/Week 40 Description of Work Unit

The Center for Educator Preparation (CEP) exists within the School of Education and is built on partnerships with local school districts using a Professional Development School (PDS) Model allowing future teachers to gain valuable classroom experience in partnership schools earlier than traditional teacher licensure models. In Colorado, bachelor degrees are not awarded in general education, so in order to obtain a teaching license, teacher candidates earn a bachelor's degree in a content area. The Educator Preparation Program at Colorado State University offers these teaching endorsement areas for students:

• PreK – Grade 3: Early Childhood Education • Kindergarten – Grade 12: Art, Foreign Languages, Instructional Technology; and Music Education • Secondary – Grades 7-12: Agricultural, Business, English, Family and Consumer Sciences, Marketing, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Speech, and Technology Education

This position is designed to provide highly effective, informed, strategic and hands-on support to CEP staff in the work to promote and support quality teacher preparation through the four pillars of the CEP's Professional Development School Model: Educator Preparation, Faculty Development, Inquiry Directed at the Improvement of Practice, and Enhanced Student Engagement. This requires intentional collaboration with and among CEP faculty within and outside the School of Education, as well as school district partners to provide and promote the connection of pre-service and in-service teacher development. Opportunities to teach within the CEP, as well as support field placements as part of the undergraduate program experience, will be paramount to the position.
