"SW Oklahoma is in need of qualified teachers,” says Dr. Dana Hilbert, Chair, CU Department of Education. “The teacher shortage continues to impact educational experiences for the children in our schools. Cameron University has a strong commitment to teacher education and is working with local school districts to find effective and creative solutions. The CU Become a Teacher series provides interested individuals in our communities an opportunity to explore the multiple pathways to becoming a certified teacher in Oklahoma and encourages those individuals to begin their teacher education at Cameron University. "
CU Become A Teacher will offer information to those who have a college degree, those who have earned college credit but have yet to earn a degree, and those who have yet to earn college credit.
Presented by the CU Department of Education, CU Become a Teacher is made possible through an Oklahoma Teacher Connection Grant from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
