Teachers are dedicated to meeting the learning needs of our nation's most precious resources, our children. The role of a teacher is one of the most recognized and appreciated careers in our society. Teachers share their knowledge and their passion for learning on a daily basis. They encourage students to feel good about themselves while supporting and guiding them toward realization and fulfillment of their dreams. Individually there are few rewards greater than seeing students excited about a topic and growing in competence. Watching students mature, and achieve success, while knowing you have a part, is just one of the many rewards of teaching.

Teacher candidates at Eastern Washington University are personally guided through the most challenging and comprehensive education preparation program in the State of Washington. Our faculty and staff are among the most dedicated and nationally recognized professionals in the field of Education.
