Special Education (K-12)
The philosophy of the Conceptual Framework reflects the premise that teaching is both an art and a science. Prospective teachers should receive the education and guidance necessary to develop mastery of subject matter; a personal philosophy of learning and teaching; proficiency in planning, instruction, and assessment; competency in classroom leadership; and a realization and acceptance of their responsibility in directing the educational experiences of their students. Louisiana College offers an initial certification program. Within that initial program, one may pursue the undergraduate bachelor’s degree with certification in elementary grades, secondary level subjects (English, French, mathematics, sciences, social studies, and Spanish), or K-12 grades certification in art, music, or Health & Physical Education. The Teacher Education Program is designed as a process to help the candidates become knowledgeable, caring, empowering educators who can fulfill these important tasks. The following outcomes are embraced in support of the mission and are correlated to the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) Standards.
