If you want to be an elementary or secondary school teacher, you will be making a number of decisions: What age group do you want to teach? What subject do you want to teach? Will you transfer to a school with an undergraduate (four-year/bachelor’s) or graduate (fifth year/master’s) teaching program? Which school do you want to transfer to? The answer to these questions will help determine the appropriate courses to take. MHCC offers a number of education courses to help you determine if teaching is really for you and prepare you for transfer to a four-year university. Three courses, ED142, ED200 and ED209A/B, are recommended for students who want to more fully explore the profession before beginning an educational program.
