We started it all.

Yes, we did. Back in 1912, when then West Tennessee State Normal School first opened its doors on Central Avenue, students came here to become leaders in education. The power of that vision is even stronger today. Students enter the College of Education at the UofM to become actively engaged in shaping society to be the best that it can be. We are 57 degree programs strong, with 14 research centers and institutes, and partnerships throughout the Mid-South to provide an amazing array of one-of-a-kind opportunities to our students to get real-world experiences.

Fewer than 100 U.S. colleges offer what we do

Putting our students smack dab in the middle of laboratory schools housed right on the UofM campus is unique and rare. Only 100 universities nationwide share this distinction. Our students work on-site at the Barbara K. Lipman Early Childhood School and Research Institute (for children aged two to Kindergarten) and at the University of Memphis Campus School (serving children from first grade through fifth grade). We proudly demonstrate best practices for our students, so they can become devoted to careers in education, health and human sciences. In Memphis we are driven by doing. Driven to prepare you well. To bring out your passions. To inspire you to initiate change for the betterment of society. That's what Memphis does.

Why hire a university of memphis teacher candidate?

Because they graduate from the University of Memphis' Ready2Teach Program.

Curriculum focuses on Common Core Standards, Formative Assessment, Differentiated Instruction/Assessment, Integration of Technology & Reality-Based Problem Solving. Our curriculum is practitioner focused and reflects the real world of teaching.

Yearlong Residency begins when our Partnership Schools begin not when University Classes begin. Our teacher candidates experience in-service week and the first week students begin school. Their teaching is formally observed a minimum of 13 times during the course of the Residency. Our candidates are assessed using district assessment instruments.

Partnerships have been developed so our Candidates are placed for one academic year with a PreService Instructive Mentor (PIM) that has demonstrated a positive impact on student achievement and has scored either a 4 or 5 on the teacher evaluation system used in their district. Our candidates learn how to teach from the best teachers.

edTPA, a nationally scored performance assessment modeled after the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, is a graduation requirement. Nationally trained scorers from other states assess our candidates' teaching skills.

Why hire a University of Memphis Teacher Candidate?



Not only do we have four academic departments offering multiple graduate and undergraduate degrees, we also house three research centers and two laboratory schools.
