A Passion for Teaching, Learning and Leadership
A 21st Century School of Education
For over 40 years, the Upper Valley Educators Institute has been a national leader in preparing adults for careers as teachers and school leaders.
The UVEI alternative principal and teacher certification model differs from a traditional school of education program by reversing the percentage of time traditionally allotted to academic theory and actual practice.
UVEI also offers its own competency-based Masters Programs in education and school leadership.
A focus on outcomes and the achievement of competencies - what an educator must know and be able to do - is at the heart of the UVEI approach.
Teacher Interns spend 80% of their time in classrooms under the guidance of a master mentor teacher and a UVEI supervisor.
The Principal Internship Program nurtures a new generation of school leaders, preparing them for roles that keep up with the dynamic changes in schools.
UVEI offers its own competency-based Masters Programs and also partners with three other institutions that offer masters degrees
Committed to great teaching and learning, UVEI prepares people with strong ideals and diverse experience for careers as teachers and school leaders.
