Teacher Education Program Assessment
The Education Preparation Provider (EPPs) mission, vision and values are consistent with both the university and college in that we aim "to develop a cadre of professional educators who, having been taught by models of good teaching, are prepared with an array of theories, tools, and skills necessary to create rich learning environments in which urban children and youth can strive for and reach success." To ensure our candidates are prepared to teach NYC students, we have strong clinical and community partnerships as well as special initiatives to support hiring in NYCDOE shortage areas. Some of these initiatives include the Men Teach program, the Bilingual Pupil Services (BPS), and our Para-to-Completion program. The Men Teach program is an intentional approach to enriching the numbers of men of color entering education, and is a partnership between the Office of the Mayor, the New York City Department of Education and CUNY. The EPP also promotes the opportunity for pre-service educators majoring in Spanish to participate in the BPS program. BPS is an opportunity for pre-service candidates in bilingual education or TESOL to work in the New York City public schools as a paraprofessional, leading toward a role as teacher.
