Teacher Education Department

About our Department

The MSSU Teacher Education program is nationally accredited and comprised of faculty and staff who are dedicated to developing the best possible teachers for tomorrow's classrooms.

Our faculty and staff are experts in the field and have experience in P-12 education.  They care about our students, make time for them, and have their best interests at heart.

Missouri Southern Students will:

  • attend small classes and receive personal attention from their professors
  • have the opportunity to participate in community service and internships that give them classroom experience
  • graduate being prepared to step into the classroom and teach from day one; participate in active, hands-on lessons using the newest technology and create real-world projects that are classroom-ready
