Teachers shape the future. It may be cliché, but it’s repeated so often simply because it’s true. Teaching gives you the opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of young people. While it can be a challenging and frustrating job, it is also rewarding, satisfying and a daily adventure.

Teaching requires a minimum of a Bachelor Degree, but the Teacher Education Associate Degree program at LCCC can give you a head start on that degree at a much more affordable price than many four-year colleges. In addition, you can take classes part-time, close to home, and work with a faculty that understands the realities of your life and the community where you may teach one day.
