Reinventing Teacher Education

Our innovative partnerships change the lives of children and families. Our successful iTeachAZ program prepares teacher candidates with intensive clinical experience at school sites throughout Arizona. For more than a decade we have partnered with urban and rural schools statewide, including those on American Indian reservations, training highly qualified teachers and principals within their own communities.

We integrate theory and practice. Our graduates are highly sought after because of their comprehensive education, both in rigorous curriculum fueled by current research, and by demonstrating best practices with intensive field experience. Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College offers teacher preparation programs in early childhood, elementary, secondary, special education, physical education, and diversity in language and learning in addition to master’s degree programs for professional educators and several doctoral degrees. Teachers College has been ranked among the best by U.S. News & World Report for 12 consecutive years. 

We advance teaching with purposeful curriculum and strategic technology. Today’s educators face many challenges that didn’t exist a generation ago. Teachers College’s curriculum integrates technology; educational leadership; competencies to teach children from diverse backgrounds, including children with special needs; and standards-based, data-driven instruction and assessment.

We are not limited by location. Teachers College offers programs at all four ASU campuses; Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, Tempe and West, as well as at partner school districts statewide. Several master's degrees and certificate programs are offered online.

We cannot do this alone. Support the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.

The Jarnagins focus on improving the lives of those dedicated to teaching children. That's one of the reasons they established a scholarship benefiting Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College student teachers. "Education was always emphasized in my family," Donald says. "I support the college because of the education of my family — my mother, sister and sister-in-law are all ASU grads and teachers."
