MO Transforming Educator Preparation (MoTEP)

What is MoTEP?

Missouri and other select states have been invited to join the Network for Transforming Educator Preparation (NTEP) for two years beginning October 1, 2015. The work is a combination of state meetings and a regular national convening with other participating states. The fifty participants invited to the state meetings represent higher education, PK-12 education, professional associations and organizations and the Departments of Higher Education and Elementary and Secondary Education. Together these individuals make up MoTEP: Missouri Transforming Educator Preparation.
