teacher education classroomTeachers know the importance of planning for their classrooms and careers—and the University of Nebraska at Kearney makes summer the opportune time to get started.

Although going back to school is a big decision, submitting an application soon for an online teacher education program ensures a summer semester start. Here are just a few reasons why summer at UNK is useful for teachers:

1. You can invest in your own learning while your class takes a break.
Starting in the summer lets you focus more exclusively on your first semester of coursework as you take a break from your own classroom teaching.  

2. Your teaching strategies become more effective for next fall.
Learning from UNK faculty and other classroom teachers in your summer courses helps you to enhance your teaching as you start the new school year.

3. You set an example for your incoming class of students.
Seeing a teacher who commits to continuing education speaks volumes to students about the value of always learning and growing.

4. You can recharge yourself professionally.
Refreshing your skills and learning new ones can keep you motivated about the purpose of what you do and the impact you have on students.

5. Your summer break becomes as productive as possible.
Striving now to enhance your teaching and credentials makes efficient use of your time and gets you to your goal faster.

March 15 is the application deadline to begin an online teacher education program in the upcoming summer semester. View more than 30 online graduate programs in education-related fields from UNK.
