This program is part of the Education Studies Department.

The Educator Professional Development program offers a variety of professional development courses designed to help practicing educators fulfill continuing education requirements while adding state-approved teaching endorsements to their current teacher certifications.

Available Associate Degrees and Certificates

Teacher endorsement courses offered through MCC are scheduled upon school or school district request [Exception: early childhood endorsement courses are regularly offered as well as some of the SEI and ESL courses]. Groups of AT LEAST 15 certified, practicing educators meet as cohorts to take evening or summer classes together.  Classes may be held on-site in the requesting district’s buildings or at an MCC campus.  If you are certified but are not an employee of one of our partner school districts, you may still enroll in the teacher endorsement classes offered when space is available.
