Position Summary:

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Elementary Education program prepares teachers who can foster high academic achievement in all students - particularly students of color, students from minoritized racial, cultural, linguistic and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as students with disabilities. Teacher education students learn to recognize how their own background and experience shape their thinking and actions, to reflect on their practices, and to develop and adapt practices that serve the needs of their students.

Through their preparation, students gain awareness of how schools reflect both the strengths and inequities of our increasingly multicultural society and become more committed to advancing social justice and equity through their classroom practice and community interactions. They learn to welcome parents, caregivers, and community members into their classrooms as partners in the educational process. They integrate research-based practices in their teaching and, in doing so, acquire knowledge and skills that enable them to grow professionally throughout their teaching careers.

The Elementary Education program currently consists of four distinct program options: Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence (grades 1-8); Early childhood/English as a Second Language (birth-age 8); Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence/English as a Second Language (grade 1-8); and Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence and Special Education dual certification.

Teacher candidates in our programs are typically juniors. They enter as a cohort and complete the coursework and field placements together over the course of four semesters.

We are seeking two faculty associates to lead cohorts of teacher-candidates through these programs.

Additional Information:

This position may be extended or made renewable depending on funding and department need.
