Together with our school partners, the School of Education prepares teachers widely sought after by Texas schools and around the U.S. and often equated to teachers with several years of experience. Per Baylor's strategic vision, Pro Futuris, we are initiating a process to advance this nationally recognized program to an even higher level, developing a stronger national model while simultaneously improving the knowledge base from which teachers are prepared. We seek to hire a faculty member in the Department of Curriculum & Instruction who is both scholarly and appreciates the practical nature of the educational enterprise.
