Preparing the next generation of educators
Mixed LLC Experience
Considering teaching as a possible career? If you think you might like to explore what it means to teach, whether it is in a K-12 classroom, a preschool, or even a museum, then the iTeach LLC is for you!
The iTeach Living-Learning Community is designed for every student who may be interested in a career in teaching. Open to ALL undergraduate students, and ALL majors, this community is focused on introducing students to teaching as a career path. We will provide hands-on experiences through job-shadowing, paid tutoring opportunities with local schools, and direct interaction with an Education Faculty Advisor. iTeach Community members will have opportunities to visit K-12 classrooms and education programs in museums, meet teachers, and learn about educational technology along with other creative teaching materials. This LLC is sponsored by the Graduate School of Education.
As a result of living in the iTeach Living-Learning Community, students will have the opportunity to…
- Identify campuses resources that will assist in preparing for the MTELs, and utilize tutoring services in an effort to enhance academic success.
- Explore the UMass Lowell’s Education programs and the organizations that support them (e.g., education minor, UTeach, Master’s degrees in secondary teaching, Jumpstart, etc…).
- Develop an understanding of how to obtain teacher licensure within Massachusetts.
- Identify opportunities that support service learning in an effort to develop the essential skills required to become an effective teacher.
- Recognize the value, and explore the essential connection to, urban learning within K-12 education.
- Develop meaningful relationships with Education advisors, faculty, alumni, and peers that will promote professional and academic success.
