Be more than a teacher—be a mentor.
You probably have a mentor. Someone who pointed out your strengths, pushed your limits, and cheered you on. At Lesley, you’ll learn how to become that inspiration for high school and middle school students.
As a secondary education major, you’ll challenge your boundaries and explore your strengths while working with different age groups and all types of learners. Expand your content knowledge and build confidence in your teaching skills.
Take a hands-on approach to learning. While studying in Cambridge—an epicenter of education—you’ll put your knowledge into action in a range of suburban and urban classrooms throughout Greater Boston.
You’ll be guided by our faculty—practicing teachers with a pulse on the latest developments in the field. From their example, you’ll learn models for teaching that foster creativity while supporting students in grades 8-12 and 5-8 with diverse learning styles and needs. Become a content expert in English, history, math or political science.
Receive unmatched coaching and connections. With our support throughout the teacher licensure process and field placement, and a network of over 55,000 fellow Lesley educators worldwide, you’ll have all the career resources you need to become the teacher you’ve always wanted to be.
Lesley graduates have a reputation for being confident and equipped educators from day one. With a Lesley education, you’ll be one of the most sought-after teachers in New England and beyond.
