Contextual Information

Description: The Doane Teacher Education Program is characterized as performance-based and developmental. Students begin the program in the freshman year. Through a series of sequenced experiences, pre-service teachers complete approximately 300 hours of hands-on practicum experiences with K-12 students prior to student teaching. Following graduation, students extend their training into a summer semester of graduate work. Doane guarantees all students employment and offers a first-year teacher mentor program. In addition, Doane is the only college in Nebraska and the first in the nation to offer an absolute warranty on the quality of the graduates.
