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.

The Educational Leadership program is a cadre program. All students enter in the summer semester and complete a variety of classroom, practicum and internship experiences in the two-year program. Students may gain K-12 or K-8 certification as a principal upon successful completion of the program. Cadres exist in Lincoln, NE; Grand Island, NE; and Omaha, NE.
