CTEP faculty are talented educators who have dedicated their professional lives to teaching, research, and service.  With a wide and impressive range of interests and expertise, CTEP faculty teach courses and serve as academic advisors.

Several faculty have gained important teaching recognition at the College and University levels. In addition, their research agendas extend from local and regional spheres of influence to national and international arenas. 

CTEP is honored to work with outstanding public school teachers and administrators. Many highly committed classroom teachers provide our student interns with invaluable modeling and mentorship within their field placements. Working in partnership with CTEP, they are dedicated to shaping the next generation of educators.
