Western Carolina University opened its doors in 1889 as a teaching college serving the western part of the state. Today, WCU’s School of Teaching and Learning continues to offer leading teacher education programs with some of the best teacher placement rates in the state of North Carolina.
The School of Teaching and Learning has great working relationships with local school systems in instructional partnerships.
The landscape of the K-12 teaching environment across the U.S., and also North Carolina, lends itself to being predominantly comprised of white females. What’s hard to find are African American male teachers.
