People who are looking to go into the teaching profession can never have enough education. While it takes a certain amount of personal growth, it is important that future educators have enough support in order to succeed in the profession.
Rio Salado College (RSC), which is part of the Maricopa Community College District, teamed up with The New York Times Knowledge Network to provide an online teacher preparation program for people who have already earned bachelor's degrees.
Academic officials said that this partnership would allow more future educators to prepare themselves for the job before they begin to teach students.
"Rio Salado College and The New York Times Knowledge Network are both innovators in higher education," said Chris Bustamante, president of Rio Salado College. "It is an exciting opportunity to work together to offer students the advantage of Rio Salado's proven teacher preparation program and the Knowledge Network's depth of content resources."
As the education sector is always changing, it is important that teachers stay informed on the current trends and make sure they are prepared to be a resource to their students.
