Middle Level Teacher Education Program
The Middle Level Teacher Education Program is a personalized, innovative program at the University of Kentucky. Teacher Candidates will participate in University-School Partnerships with strong collaborations between faculty and classroom teachers. Program completion leads to Kentucky certification in grades 5-9 in two content areas (English, Math, Social Studies, Science).
Our Middle Level Program Faculty includes educators from within the College of Education, faculty from the University community and the Professional Educators from the Bluegrass area.
The Middle Level Education Program is approved by the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL
Teach Middle School
Where young minds
Are willing to inquire
Where young spirits
Are waiting to be inspired
Where talented educators
Are able to innovate
IN A POSITION TO SUCCEED
Middle-School teaching is
One of the fastest-growing job opportunities
And it is a job where
You know that what you do really matters.
