The Teacher Education Program at Lees-McRae has achieved the high standards required to maintain accreditation by The Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC)/Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). Building on the liberal arts core curriculum, the program curriculum has a balance of philosophy, theory and practice for effective teacher preparation. Among the many distinctions of the Lees-McRae Teacher Education Program, the Reflective Practitioner Framework is perhaps of greatest importance as it is a process that encourages students to reflect on every aspect of the learning and teaching experience.
