Most of our secondary science teachers are trained in a post-baccalaureate program, which is administered through the School of Education and supported by our department. For example, the faculty listed above both have PhDs in Science Education and teach the science methods courses. We also have undergraduate science teaching majors within our department.

We have a unique environment here at Edgewood because we share a campus with a high school and an elementary school. Many of our students will do practicum and student teaching here on campus.

Although we do regularly have students working towards the physics certification (four are doing their student teaching this year), we hope to increase the number of students getting a physics certification. The PhysTEC program also gives us with a network of physics educators who can help provide us with support and guidance as we grow our program.
