The goal of the M.Ed. program for Elementary Education is to transform professional educators into distinguished responsive classroom teachers, action researchers, and instructional leaders who believe all children have the capacity to learn, and who have an in-depth understanding of and appreciation for all aspects of diversity.
Responsive teachers integrate an in-depth knowledge of subject matter, developmentally effective approaches to teaching and learning, and reciprocal relationships with children and families to design, implement, and evaluate experiences that promote positive development and learning for all children.
As instructional leaders, responsive teachers are continuous, collaborative learners who demonstrate ethical, knowledgeable, reflective, and critical perspectives on their work, making informed decisions that integrate information from avariety of sources. They are well-informed advocates for sound educational practices and policies.
