Teacher Education Program

Teacher Education Program (TEP)

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. See links below for more information.

TEP Requirements

The mission of the College of Education is to prepare highly skilled, knowledgeable, and continually developing undergraduate and graduate candidates capable of sound, informed decision making during their careers in the fields of P-12 education, leadership, and counseling.
