Division of Teacher Education

The purposes of The Division of Teacher Education program are to prepare the teacher candidate to function as professional teacher and to aid the teacher candidate in developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to assist school children in reaching their potential.

The Teacher Education Program at Oklahoma Baptist University is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, CAEP. In addition, all education programs, such as elementary education, special education, secondary math education, and early childhood education, are individually accredited through their Special Professional Associations, SPAS.  OBU has produced 49 completers who have met the requirements for National Board Certification.

“OBU helped me answer my calling in life through a kaleidoscope of rich experiences. My professors instilled habits of self-reflection and a willingness to evolve my teaching, habits that remain with me to this day. Perhaps the most important seed planted by OBU is the knowledge and acceptance that I cannot be everything for my students, but I can point them in the direction of Jesus who is everything; for this I am grateful." - Katie Thompson, '13, 2020 Oklahoma Teacher of the Year Finalist
