Education is a field with a variety of options for working with
children; the most popular position being a classroom teacher.
is predicted the United States will need to fill nearly 1 million
teaching positions as current teachers reach retirement age. High
demand areas will include those requiring special training in math
and science, working with English as a Second Language, working with
those identified with special needs and working within schools which
serve a significant percentage of students from low-income situations.
Family and Consumer Sciences is rapidly becoming a high need area
in the state of Kansas as high schools have redesigned programs to
meet work force demands and revisions within the Kansas State Department
of Education Career & Technical Education Pathway programs.
To teach children (PreK – 12th grade) in Kansas public schools,
teachers must be licensed
by the Kansas State Department of Education. This is accomplished
after completion of a four year degree and meeting minimum standards
on professional assessments in content areas and pedagogy of teaching.
Cowley College offers several avenues and partnerships to assist
students in transferring to an appropriate teacher college to meet
state licensure requirements for all grade levels.
In addition, Cowley College has designed programs to assist those
who would like to work within school systems but seek employment
opportunities other than as a classroom teacher.
