Your success in becoming a highly effective teacher is our goal. From your approval as a teacher candidate through your student teaching experience and beyond, we're here for you.
CANDIDATES' PERFORMANCE ON NATIONAL EXAMINATIONS
Candidates in the Teacher Education Program at TSU achieved a 100% pass rate on the Praxis exams for the 2013 -2014 Academic Year. The Praxis exams, administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification requirements by many states and professional licensing organizations. Additionally, the overall average performance of candidates taking the edTPA, a performance-based assessment administered by Pearson, was 38.73.
YOUR CONNECTION TO THE TEP
As the connection between your chosen academic specialty and TSU's teacher education program, you can count on the Office of Teacher Education and Student Services to:
- maintain your records and
- keep you informed of requirements to meet licensure and retention standards.
Depend on us to collaborate with you to find suitable pre-service field experiences in the Nashville metro area, Sumner County, and elsewhere to provide relevant school-based experiences and clinical practice.
