If you’re looking for a secure and rewarding career, consider teaching. Now more than ever, teachers are in great demand. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education reports that over the next 10 years, more than two million teachers will be needed. In New Jersey alone, 4,540 teaching positions for primary, secondary, and special education teachers are expected to be available annually until 2020.
In order to meet the demand, County College of Morris (CCM) has created an outstanding teacher education program in 10 different specializations. These 10 specializations will start you on your career as a teacher in grades K-12.
CCM’s teacher education program will give you the opportunity to gain first-hand experience and be an active participant in the classroom. Although most of your course work will be in your specialization, specific teacher education courses will begin to give you the foundation you will need to succeed as a teacher.
