The Secondary Education Program leads to certification in grades 6-12 in a specific field of study: English, history, or science. Content area courses in the field of choice are a large part of the academic load. As with other majors, methodology courses and application involvement through field experiences round out a well-balanced program in preparing candidates to be effective teachers.
The Teacher Education major in Secondary Education will equip you with knowledge of the diverse learners and the content they teach, skills in planning instruction, assessing, and managing, and character reflecting appropriate interaction with the school community, life-long learning and a calling as a Christian servant leader.
IS TEACHING A CALLING?
In the Teacher Education Department at Toccoa Falls College, we believe that the profession of education truly IS a calling. In our program, you are equipped to be servant leaders in today’s classrooms – serving students, parents, colleagues, administrators and the community. Our aim is to prepare prospective teachers to serve in private, public and overseas school classrooms.
One of our greatest resources in TFC’s Early Childhood Program is our highly qualified and dedicated faculty. We begin from our own spiritual roots and our own professional experience and expertise in teaching P-5 classrooms to assist prospective teachers in developing the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to be effective educators in the 21st century. The Christian worldview is integrated into each of the courses offered to prepare early childhood teachers to make a positive contribution to our changing society and world.
