Quality math and science teachers are in high demand. GeauxTeach allows students to pursue an undergraduate degree in biology, chemistry, mathematics or physics AND earn secondary teaching certification at the same time. No additional hours are required, since elective hours are used for education courses. Upon completing the GeauxTeach Program, you will have a BS degree in science or math AND be both certified and highly qualified to teach in that subject area.
Freshmen and sophomores can “test-drive” GeauxTeach before making a commitment by enrolling in “Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Math and Science Teaching (BASC 2010), a one credit hour introductory course. In this course, you will explore the theory and practice of inquiry-based instruction and work collaboratively to teach two lessons to elementary students in local schools.
