Teacher Education in Oklahoma

While trying to choose the right teaching program for your needs, spend a lot of time thinking about what your ideal teaching job looks like. Do you want to work with college students in a post-secondary institution or children with developmental disabilities in an inclusive classroom? Do you favor younger children or adolescents? These questions can help you find the subject and teaching license that is a good fit for your future career.

No matter which school you choose, you should feel confident that your curriculum prepares you for a number of classroom situations, learning needs, and teaching responsibilities. Your curriculum should address the specific challenges that come with each type of licensure. For example, you may prepare for a special education job by taking courses like Curriculum and Transitions for Special Education Teachers, Introduction to Inclusive Education and Disabilities, Classroom Management and Intervention Strategies, Diagnosis in Special Education, and Education of Children with Learning Disabilities.

Oklahoma is home to many organizations that provide financial aid to teaching students. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education award the Future Teachers Scholarship.
