Students are often interested in biology
Our program builds upon your major in biology with an educational track, leading to certification. When you successfully complete this program you will be recommended for certification to teach biology, grades 6-12. Through reciprocity with other states that Georgia teaching certification allows you to apply to teach anywhere in the nation—and most places need biology teachers.
As a SPSU biology teacher, you will learn to do the following:
- Use the state and national curricula to give the students the foundational understanding of biology needed in a modern world [link to GaDOE, etc.];
- Guide students to understand the living world;
- Get them to work in teams;
- Get them to see the world as scientists see it;
Talk to someone in Teacher Education today to evaluate your transcripts to determine what you need to take to become a teacher.
