Be a Teacher

  • Lake County Office of Education (LCOE) and Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE) have partnered to bring the "Be A Teacher" Intern Program to Lake and Mendocino Counties. The "Be A Teacher" Intern Program is provided through the North Coast School of Education (NCSOE) and allows teacher interns to work full-time while pursuing their teaching credential.

    In our two-year state accredited intern program, interns are employed as teachers during the day and attend credential classes approximately two days a week in the evening while receiving ongoing coaching from an on-site mentor, course instructors, and practicum supervisors.

    The North Coast School of Education's (NCSOE) mission is to develop a workforce of teachers and school leaders who engage in research-based practices, understand the importance of preparing students for college and career readiness and have 21st century skills to develop and implement innovative methods and ideas in the classroom and school.  NCSOE exemplifies the notion that learning is creative, rigorous, relevant, relationship-driven, and incorporates inquiry and reflection in ongoing professional growth.
