The Department of Education provides a rich academic environment for
the preparation of pre-service and in-service teachers for the ultimate
benefit of today’s culturally diverse K-12 students.
Our courses model best practices in instruction and use a variety of strategies based on modern learning theory. All courses improve reading, writing, and thinking skills. All students are valued as critical to the future success of schools.
Each instructor attends to the success of each student while maintaining standards in concert with national models of competent teacher knowledge and skills. All instructors continually seek to enhance their knowledge to competently lead and support emergent teachers.
The Associate of Arts in Teaching degree is based on the Maryland Outcomes for Teacher Preparation. Students who complete the program will have the knowledge and skills delineated in that document.
Courses offered to provisional teachers and career changers meet the standards requirements of the Maryland State Department of Education and provide knowledge and strategies directly related to the instructional needs of the Prince George’s County School System.
The faculty members of the Department of Education form a collaborative group who share a vision of the importance of their role in shaping the future and who are committed participants in moving community colleges to the forefront of teacher education.
Early Childhood Education

effective professional career preparation in the field of early childhood
education. To that end, the department offers four options: Certificate of
Mastery in Early Childhood Education - Code 764, a certificate
program consisting of ten early childhood education courses to prepare
senior staff; an A.A.S. degree program to prepare center directors - Code

prepare to teach children at the Nursery through Grade Three level in the
public schools. In addition there is a twelve credit ECE Certificate
available to those interested in gaining additional proficiency in special
education - Code 765.
