Teacher Education Program (TEP)

The central theme of the Teacher Education Program at the University of Montevallo is Educator as a 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. The true professional will always seek opportunities for growth.
