Build upon your educational experience.
As a working teacher, you need a program that works for you. Our transformative Experienced Educators M.Ed and Certificate programs will help you meet your professional and personal goals by building on your expertise and supporting new growth. We understand that you have a lot on your plate, so our programs are designed to intersect with your existing work, be it in the classroom, a community-based setting, or in higher education. Small, highly personalized, on-line classes are individually crafted by our own faculty, who are themselves deeply engaged in their fields of study. You’ll get to study with other working educators from around the country and the world, folks who share your passion and are eager to engage with colleagues about some of the most cutting edge topics in the field, like nature and place-based education, mindfulness, trauma-informed teaching, integrated STEAM education, and problem-based learning.
