Center for Teacher Education

The Colorado Mesa University Center for Teacher Education works closely with the school districts throughout western Colorado including Delta, Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Jackson, Mesa, Moffat, Montrose, Ouray, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt, San Miguel, and Summit Counties. Our graduates are placed in teaching and administrative positions in these districts as well as the rest of Colorado and throughout the United States. We offer a variety of methods for teacher licensure: traditional degree plans and non-traditional, intensive programs for candidates who already hold a bachelor's degree. Interested students and community members can contact us at any time for an initial advising appointment. For our campus and school district communities, informational meetings are regularly held at convenient times for the working professional.

Our graduates work as teachers in Colorado and across the U.S. The Colorado Mesa University Center for Teacher Education (CTE) has a unique relationship with our 14-county western slope community of school districts. We educate and prepare new teachers for all these schools' classrooms. The continuing education needs of K-12 faculty and administrators are also coordinated through our teacher education program.

Using 21st century tools, we prepare our graduates to employ emerging technologies and best practices to lead in elementary, middle school, and high school classrooms. Cutting-edge technology is used in our newly developed smart classroom, DH 112, to educate tomorrow's classroom leaders in curriculum, state standards, classroom management, and education research.
