The SJC Teacher Education programs provide a variety of education course electives for the AA degrees, and also strive to meet the needs of local teachers by offering courses for professional development. Special topic courses such as TESOL, Special Education, technology, and reading instruction are also offered. All three Teacher Education AA degree programs meet the criteria and program outcomes as established by the HED for common core requirements and the NMPED for teacher licensure, and are designed to transfer seamlessly to the Education Programs at the four year universities.
