The central theme of the Teacher Education Program at the University of Montevallo is Educator as Developing Professional. The idea is that we are never finished products. As professionals, we are continually growing along a continuum from novice to expert. Through our degree programs we gain knowledge, skills, and dispositions that lead to greater expertise. Again, we are never finished products. The true professional will always seek opportunities for growth.

Teacher Education Committee
The initial Teacher Education Program at the University of Montevallo is governed by the Teacher Education Committee (TEC) – an autonomous body comprised of teacher education faculty, arts and sciences faculty, fine arts faculty, public school personnel and student representatives. The TEC meets four times each year to make decisions regarding curriculum, policies, and procedures that affect all teacher education programs.
