The mission of the Georgetown College Teacher Education Program is  to develop scholars who are competent and caring educators, committed to a spirit of service and learning. Our vision for transformative practice promotes equitable teaching of diverse learners and requires that we prepare competent and caring educators who Plan effective instruction, Engage and educate students in positive learning climates, Advocate for growth and development of all learners, Reflect on the teaching process, and  Lead in their classrooms, schools, and communities. PEARL serves as the theme and philosophical basis that guides the teacher education program. This philosophy embraces an ethic of caring coupled with excellence in curriculum design and professional practice. To realize this goal, learning experiences center around three knowledge domains: Professional Skills and Competencies, Professional Values and Dispositions, and Reflective Practice. Our courses are taught by full-time faculty of the College and by quality adjunct faculty with specialized experience.
