What will I learn?

First, you'll build your teaching skills and learn how to critically evaluate education practice. But you'll also work in a specific concentration that focuses on what you want to learn and prepares you for the next step in your career. Choose a concentration in either Administration or Curriculum & Instruction:

Take classes for your principal certification and learn from experienced professors who are former principals, administrators and superintendents. You'll graduate from Texas Wesleyan prepared to complete the Performance Assessment for School Leaders (PASL) and ready to take on a new leadership role in education. 

Curriculum & Instruction
We'll teach you how to become a teaching leader on a struggling campus by providing strategies to improve student achievement, parental involvement and social and emotional development of students. With special program components that focus on leadership and ESL, you'll learn the culturally-responsive teaching methods needed for your classroom.
