Teaching and Learning
The Department of Teaching and Learning offers rigorous training, innovative research, and a network of partnerships to prepare teachers for the reality of schooling and to be equipped to recognize and disrupt systemic and social inequality.
Montclair State University is committed to the creation and development of teachers who strive to exemplify the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required for excellence in teaching.
The centerpiece of our work is a document called the Portrait of a Teacher, which, through a series of statements, embodies Montclair State University’s vision of an educator and informs the evaluation of candidates to the teacher education program, the assessment of student teaching, and the professional development of our community of teachers.
