At Bethel, we send out educators who are passionate about what they do and are ready to jump into a meaningful career serving today’s students. This program is for anyone who does not have a teaching license and is seeking an initial license to teach. We have a variety of focus areas: business, math, communication, science, Spanish, social studies, ESL, and visual arts.
