I want to teach:

Making an impact on the future

The Linfield Teacher Education Program is hands-on right from the start. Within your first year here, you will be working as an aide in a local school classroom. And by the time you graduate, you will have spent more than 50 hours gaining hands-on classroom experience, not including a full-year student teaching in one of our nearby school districts!

Our education department takes deep pride in being able to say that the personalized planning paired with small on-campus class sizes and a hands-on approach to learning has continued to yield successful, passionate graduates who are making a difference!

The Linfield education department supports the Case for Equity from the Oregon Equity Lens. Our program embraces an Educator Equity Framework “BASEd” on values of identity, diversity, justice and action to best prepare education majors for “Becoming Educators for Anti-racism, Social Justice and Equity” or BASE.

In addition to training future teachers in their content areas and strong teaching practices, the curriculum in our program integrates the Learning for Justice Social Justice Standards.
