The Teachers Academy is an umbrella unit that (a) oversees policies and practices of professional education programs at UNCG, and (b) supports ongoing program evaluation of professional education programs (e.g., NCATE accreditation and DPI reviews). The Teachers Academy has a council of Council of Program Coordinators (CPC) that represents the 34 professional education programs on the UNCG campus, a representative Steering Committee, and an Advisory Council consisting of members from the 15 school districts that constitute the Piedmont Triad Educational Consortium (PTEC). The Teachers Academy and the CPC are led by Dr. Barbara Levin.
If you have questions about advising, becoming a professional educator, or about licensure, please call the Office of Student Services at 334-3410 or email SOEOSS@uncg.edu.
Faculty who need access to the Blackboard organization for the Teachers Academy and CPC should email Dr. Barbara Levin at firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
Teachers Academy Mission Statement
The mission of professional education at UNCG is to prepare and support the professional development of caring, collaborative, and competent educators who work in diverse settings. This mission is carried out in an environment that nurtures the active engagement of all participants, values individual as well as cultural diversity, and recognizes the importance of reflection and integration of theory and practice. UNCG’s professional education programs are guided by shared commitments to
- equity and excellence in teaching, research and service;
- professional integrity and ethical deliberation in dealing with students and colleagues (university-based, school-based and community-based);
- construction of a professional knowledge base through collaboration and collegiality; and
- dissemination of professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions through the preparation and continuing professional development of teachers, principals, and other school personnel.
