Cameron University to bring CU Become a Teacher workshops to Frederick and Lawton

Cameron University’s popular CU Become a Teacher workshops come to Frederick and Lawton to assist area residents who are interested in entering the teaching field. The free, specialized workshops focus on the multiple pathways for becoming a teacher.  CU Become a Teacher comes to Lawton on Monday, February 19, at the CETES Conference Center on the CU campus. The Frederick workshop takes place on Thursday, March 1, at the Frederick High School Library. Each session runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend, but pre-registration is requested as a meal will be served to those who pre-register. To register online, go to http://www.cameron.edu/cu-become-a-teacher and click on “Online Registration.” For more information, email CUTeach@cameron.edu or call 580-581-2320.

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.

“Oklahoma needs certified teachers now more than ever,” says Dr. Jennifer Dennis, Chair, Department of Education. “Cameron University’s Department of Education is committed to help local communities find more teachers who live in their area. As 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.”

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. Previous CU Become a Teacher workshops have been held in Elgin, Anadarko, Cache, Duncan and Altus.
