FROM HOME: Working adults appreciate the convenience of Rio Salado College’s online teacher prep program.


For those who have a bachelor’s degree and are seeking teacher certifi cation in elementary, secondary or special education, the program combines Rio Salado College’s teacher prep program with the expansive knowledge base of The New York Times in a fl exible format, designed with working adults in mind. Rio Salado College is part of the Maricopa Community College District, one of the largest community college districts in the nation. Courses will be taught by Rio Salado faculty and supported by the Epsilen eLearning platform. Students will be able to network with online classmates across the nation.


Enrollment options include 48 start dates throughout the year, an added benefi t for students who may be changing careers.


“Rio Salado College and the New York Times Knowledge Network are both innovators in higher education,” says Dr. Chris Bustamante, president of Rio Salado College. “It is an exciting opportunity to work together to offer students the advantage of Rio Salado’s proven teacher preparation program and the Knowledge Network’s depth of content resources.”


“By weaving online course content together with ‘real world’ application, through school observations and hands-on interaction in pre K-12 classrooms, teacher preparation students are very prepared to enter their own classrooms upon program completion,” adds Janet Johnson, faculty chair of education for Rio Salado College. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, demand for qualifi ed teachers is expected to increase nearly 12 percent over the next fi ve to six years, with an even higher need for math, science and bilingual teachers. The Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Preparation Program is approved by the Arizona State Board of Education and certifi cation is accepted in many states nationwide. Admission to the program and state certifi cation are based on state-by-state requirements.
