The workshop will take place on Wednesday, March 27, in the CETES Conference Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. This free, specialized workshop will focus on the multiple pathways for becoming a teacher. There is no charge to attend. A free dinner is provided for all who pre-register.

“Cameron University continues its commitment to teacher education,” says Dr. Dana Hilbert, Chair, CU Department of Education. “The need for qualified teachers, especially in southwest Oklahoma, has a significant impact on the learning experience of children in this region. One way that we are meeting the needs of the community is by changing how we offer our classes. Beginning in Fall 2019, the Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education will be offered through evening, online and weekend classes, allowing individuals working in a school setting as a paraprofessional or assistant to complete a degree without having to leave their current job working with children. Interested individuals can learn more about this program at the workshop.”

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. The program is  made possible through an Oklahoma Teacher Connection Grant from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
