Tapping the natural curiosity of students about the world around them makes for an exciting career as a chemistry teacher. High school is an important time as students begin to think of their future plans and heading to post-secondary education. These crucial years provide the foundation students to make the life choices they need to be successful.
Area schools and organizations such as the Saint Louis Science Center offer excellent opportunities for working with students while learning to teach.
Enrolling in the Chemistry Secondary Education (9-12) program from University of Missouri–St. Louis actively and uniquely engages you throughout your studies in working with secondary students as they learn and develop in informal and formal learning settings. The College of Education recognizes that we prepare educators for a variety of roles and a variety of contexts (i.e. P-12 schools, youth serving organizations, museums, zoos, gardens, nature centers, after school programs, tutoring/mentoring programs, businesses, legislative offices, etc.) all of which impact student learning. We want to prepare community educators as well as P-12 classroom teachers who can provide relevance, application, and meaning to student learning in developmentally, socially, and culturally responsive ways.
As a teacher candidate, you will work with students in youth serving agencies to support them in non-traditional settings. You will also gain valuable practical knowledge by applying university course content to interactions with young learners in academically focused content-based community agencies such the St. Louis Chess Club, Powder Valley, and many United Way agencies.
