“With the statewide teacher shortage, Cameron University’s Department of Education is committed to help local communities find more teachers who live in their area,” says Dr. Jennifer Dennis, Chair, Department of Education. “Because the teacher certification process has changed significantly over the past several years, we want to share that information with those who are searching for a way to teach and serve the children of southwest Oklahoma.”

CU Become A Teacher will offer information to those who have a college degree, those who have earned college credit but have yet to earn a degree, and those who have yet to earn college credit.

Presented by the CU Department of Education, CU Become a Teacher is made possible through an Oklahoma Teacher Connection Grant from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
