From the Chair, Dr. Wesley Pitts

Welcome to the Department of Middle and High School Education. The mission of MHSE is to provide undergraduate and graduate studies that serves to engage a diverse body of students to become well-prepared and effective secondary teachers and educators. The vision of the department is: 1) to provide students with course work and professional experiences and settings relevant to their area(s) of specialization and 2) to introduce students to current, innovative, and culturally and linguistically relevant teaching strategies enabling them to acquire academic and personal/social skills/dispositions that prepare them to be successful in secondary education settings. In keeping with the mission of the department and the  LUTE (Lehman Urban Transformative Education), we prepare students for initial New York State certification to teach academic and special subjects in middle and high schools, grades 5-12. Undergraduate Teacher Education Program sequences have been designed for students wanting certification in the subject areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Arts, and Foreign Languages.
