Great Math Skills Translate to Lifelong Benefits
If you feel ready transition to a new profession and you've always had an interest in numbers, analyzing data, and you're passionate about children, perhaps a change to a new career in education is the right fit for you. Earn a Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification in Math 4-8 from University of Houston-Clear Lake, and you can help students acquire the math skills that translate into lifelong analytical skills. You could inspire your students to someday address the most diverse challenges the world faces in engineering, technology and science.
Strengthen Students' Overall Math Proficiency
When you teach math at the elementary and middle school levels, you'll help students understand mathematical structures, think hypothetically, and understand cause and effect. These are crucial foundation elements for success in the higher math they'll encounter in high school and beyond. The combination of relevant, useful coursework through UHCL's College of Education, a hands-on teaching internship, dedicated professors who are committed to your success, and your own previous professional experience will enable you to become an effective, creative math educator who will engage students' passion to learn more about math.Although it is not necessary for students holding at least a bachelor's degree and seeking initial teacher certification to pursue a second bachelor's degree, those who wish to do so must meet the university's lower-level requirements in addition to the requirements for both teacher certification and the second degree, unless such requirements were met through the completion of the first bachelor's degree. These lower-level requirements are described in the Core section of the catalog.
