Teacher Education at Louisiana College

“In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have.” — Lee Iacocca

Teachers are the givers of dreams to many of our children today. They give insights, share knowledge, guide pathways. Their influence is boundless. Their preparation is imperative.

Departmental Acclaim
The Louisiana College Teacher Education Program has an outstanding statistical record of giving future teachers the education and training needed to be successful as an educator.

Louisiana College has a 100 percent Institutional Pass Rate on all areas of the PRAXIS, the National Teacher Exam. Only one other college or university (out of 19) in the state has a similar pass rate. Clearly, LC teacher ed graduates are well prepared.

Statistical Evidence of Excellence

  • The department has five full-time faculty members, four of whom hold the highest academic degree awarded in their disciplines.

  • The program has a four to one student to faculty ratio for student teaching.

  • Students participate in an average of 35 hours per week of supervised student teaching during 15 weeks.

  • LC teacher education graduates are in high demand in area schools because of the reputation of the program.

Field-work Opportunities
“The primary strength of the department is their commitment to providing many valuable field-based classroom experiences in a student's studies and individualizing instruction so a student can learn about the art of teaching from those experiences,” says Christy Warren, 1990 graduate of the department & current associate professor for the department.
