The author George Bernard Shaw once wrote, "to me, the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching." Teachers perform an invaluable service for their communities, helping to inform the next generation and instill in them a desire to learn more about the world and harness their full potential.
The first step towards becoming a certified classroom teacher is to obtain your degree. Rio Salado College is now offering a bachelor degree program in Elementary Education and Special Education (BAEE/SPED). You can earn your degree at a significantly lower tuition rate than what you would pay at a four-year state university. Whether you are new to college or have prior credit, you can begin your journey to obtain a bachelor’s degree at Rio.
Rio Salado is hosting two upcoming virtual orientations about the bachelor’s degrees on Nov. 20 and Dec. 5. Find out more about tuition costs, curricula, transfer credits, and other frequently asked questions at these free information sessions.
